she doesn't understand her beauty inside
so she cries
All them tears that fall from her eyes
And the pain she tries to hide

A few know about her thoughts
And the scars on her body
from the people who taunt

She wants to stop her only relief
But with all the grief
she feels within
it's harder to stop
Then it is to begin

Her parents don't understand
And so they just shout
And make her feel even more worthless
And full of doubt

She tried to explain a thousand times
But is never able to seem to find
What will make them listen
Instead of fight.

so this poem is ending
Lets all find a alternative
from the sharp tools across our skin
And hopefully you will notice
All the beauty within.

In response to those young ladies or young men who did not get the support you needed when you needed it, there are many who are hiding, hurting, and are seeking a safe place to heal or get on the pathway to find solitude in the midst of the pain. I was one of them. I, too, was horribly judged and cruelly humiliated daily. I detested everything about myself, because inside of me I could not see anything of worth or feel wanted or needed. I beat myself up mentally and emotionally and my self-esteem left me more fragmented each time something or someone confirmed what I thought or believed about who I was. Many adults do not get this or have rare exposure to knowing how intense it can be. DBT is a therapy that will help regulate the intensity of these emotions. DBT will re-teach the body and give amazing coping and supportive skills that you apply. Yes, you do need to see a DBT therapist. I can personally say I went and I did this. I do not cut anymore. I have self-respect and care.

Hi, I'm 13 and I've been bullied every day of my life and I cut to deal with the grief of it. Recently, everyone at my school started writing terrible things in the girl's bathroom. I've talked to many counselors, but they just say suck it up. My life has been horrible ever since I started school. I've had one boyfriend, and he just changed me. Before I met him I didn't care what people thought of me, but since I broke up with him, I care about other people's opinions about me and usually they aren't the best.
