Have You Ever Lived My Life

©

Published: July 2009

Have you ever felt like you could do nothing right;
Have you ever felt like giving up the fight;
Have you ever slit your wrists;
Have you ever picked up a knife;
I have 1 question for you,

Have you ever lived my life?

I'm better now and I got help;
but sometimes I feel as though I'm slipping back;
I pick up that old rusted knife, and that bottle of pills, but then I think......
Will hell be full of thrills?
I know it won't and that's what keeps me clean.

What do you mean when you say "is hell full of thrills"
I have been dealing with depression and anxiety since sixth grade and I'm getting help now but I feel like it's not working as much as I want it to. My fingers just itch to cut so I do. There are days when I don't take my meds and I avoid therapy. I just fall into this trance of self-loathing and hopelessness.

I love this poem soo much!! I'm a cutter and I'm soo sick of people saying they understand and that things will be ok. No one truly understands and I'm really becoming scared that things won't be ok. I can relate to this poem sooooo much. thank you for writing this poem.

Wow I feel you. I don't know why people say they understand but they really don't. What's the point of telling people our problems. all they can do is listen. they can't help us. They're not there at home with us they can not enter our body and take the pain away, the hurt, the confusion, THEY'RE NOT THERE! I wish someone can take it away because I don't want to feel this way. but they can't. So it's up to us to make ourselves feel better. They say they care but people who care do stuff for us. But since they can't I guess no one cares. People need to stop saying its going to be ok. If it was ok then I wouldn't feel like this or do the thing we do. No one has lived your life except the one going thru the same thing as you
