    Hush little baby, Don't you cry,

    Don't cut your arms, Don't say goodbye, Put down that razor, Put down that knife, It may be hard, But you'll win this fight. ❤

    Count To 10

    Shut your eyes tight, Tell yourself it's all alright. Clench your fists in till they feel as if they could burst, You remember the time you had to do this first. You're eyes soon reach their fill, Soon after you're tears begin to spill. Brace yourself for what's yet to come...

    Handle With Care

    "People always want to know what it feels like, so I’ll tell you: there’s a sting when you first slice, and then your heart speeds up when you see the blood, because you know you’ve done something you shouldn’t have, and yet you’ve gotten away with it. Then you sort of...

    Scars

    When I see the scars on my body I think, "What have I done?". I think of I have to always wear bracelets. Or that people will judge me if they see. Will anyone love me? I'm so broken. 3 months clean, but I'm scared of triggers.

    I just told my best friend in the world

    that I cut. I was so nervous and I'm still shaking. I thought I might lose her, but I had to tell her because I feel so alone in this. But guess what? She cared! I'm so relieved that someone actually cares about me and my well being. I'm feeling really happy, I hope it lasts.

    Too Deep.

    Dear friend, I cut too deep. I hit the vein and I went numb. I didn't cry out, or let a tear fall, i sat there. I let the blood fall down my arm and closed my eyes. It stopped after a while. I stitched it up and went to find my mother. I had my wrist bandaged, but she wasn't...

    I was 26 days clean. These two girls at school started calling me fat, ugly, and laughing about my scars. I held it in for six hours until I got home. When I got home I broke I cut again. They say I do it for attention, but I do it as an escape.
