As she lies bleeding on the floor
She promised she would do no more
Harm to herself she really tried
But even she knew that she had lied
Now she is dying and no one is home
She has no help she is all alone
She wants to get up and fix it all
But there is no one left for her to call
Now as she dies on the floor
She hears everyone calling her a whore
She hears them calling out cutter-slut
Now she wishes she didn't cut
She wishes she could prove them wrong
But now that dream sounds far too long
She made the choice and now she will loose
She wishes that she could choose
If she could she would choose life
If only she didn't grab that knife
Now she is dead and she can't be heard
But she had so many things and words
To tell you about and to show you now
She could show what not to do and show you how
To over come those things to hard
To do on your own to play your own cards
She would tell you it is wrong
She shouldn't have done it all along
But now she's dead and you can't see
How much she really meant to me

I cut too... but I'm hoping to stop soon. I cut because my mom and my dad got divorced and my mom's bf abused me sexually, physically, and emotionally and I haven't seen my mom and my baby brother for five years:( it's all screwed up....

I rekon and correct me if I'm wrong that it is mainly girls that cut themselves, I've seen a lot of bad thing where I've come from. I've seen my best friend killed in a drive by shooting and I've watched people die but only once have I ever cut myself I didn't like it. I don't feel that it relieves the pain it just adds more.

Both boys and girls do cut, but I understand what you mean by it adding more pain. It isn't something that helps everybody. Some people self harm because it is a way to control what you are feeling. Our emotional pain can't be controlled by us very easily, but what we feel physically, on the outside, is more in our control. Both genders use it as an escape, but the way our society is set up today, we mostly only hear about the girls doing it, which is why you may think that is the case. Cutting isn't a way out, it is a short term solution that can lead to long term problems. Please don't cut yourself.

I cut, but my friends just take it as it is, I'm friends with cutters too, but they have everything handed to them. I don't cut because I want people to feel bad for me, I cut because my dads really sick and I take it out on myself everytime I mess up. I am 12 I get bullied in school by 3 people I'm not very talkative in school, people talk about me in front of me they say I'm dark inside and that I'm just a wanna be.
I don't want attention EVERYDAY I wear long sleeves because of the cuts, my parents don't know and hopefully never will.
I've asked to transfer but my mom won't unless I have her reasons. I used to be stronger and I knew how to deal with it but it's gotten too hard. I've thought about suicide a lot but I'm trying to stay strong.
This poem moved me, sometimes people care even when they don't show it, and when most 'cutters' realize it, it's too late.
I hope this poem gets out there .
I feel bad for your friend <3 no one should ever do that.

I don't know you, but I feel for you and I love you. Please don't hurt yourself. You are loved, and I know bullying is hard and life can be demanding and tough, but stay strong and don't give up hope.

I wish I could have never cut, but we all learn from our mistakes one way or another, some learn sooner then others. For some it's to late but make sure no one else makes the same mistake. I'm still hurting inside, but I learned to wear my old scars with pride. I regret them, I really do, but its good to know I'm alive, and that you are too. RIP your friend and may she rest in peace, for now she roams in an endless sleep. May she never be forgotten, she deserves that much even after life.
