STOP Cutting Poem

Poem About Recovering From Self-Harm

I self-harmed for a long time, and I contemplated suicide. I'm making progress; it's almost been a year since I last cut. I just want to let people know that it really does get better. You can do it.

A Few More Steps

You're almost there.
Just a few more steps.
You can beat this game,
a lot like chess.
You can move backward, and that's okay.
Just remember to move forward every other day.

Now, I'm no expert,
but you will find
if you keep moving forward,
you'll get your peace of mind.
It's gonna be hard, believe me I know,
for you to show your healing cuts
without feeling like a freakshow.

It's going to get better.
Trust me; just believe it.
You'll finally be relieved of it.

You're almost there.
Just a few more steps.
You can beat this game,
a lot like chess.
You can move backward, and that's okay.
Just remember to move forward every other day.
