Hurting Poem by Teens

I'm living with depression, countless nights of waking up screaming from nightmares, beating myself up, cutting, crying, screaming. My dad tried to kill me when I was little, and I watched my mom get raped. I'm constantly trying to be a better person. This is aimed at all my friends for if something does happen to me, I want to express myself without doing something stupid.

If Only Walls Could Talk

Published: November 2014

If only walls could talk,
They'd tell you about me,
And how they hear me scream
And watch me while I bleed.

If only walls could talk,
They'd tell you I was damned.
Surprised that I'm not dead,
With a knife clutched to my hand.

If only walls could talk,
They'd tell you how I cry.
All the pain that's in my eyes
That's eating me alive.

If only walls could talk,
They'd tell you to be strong,
To keep on moving on,
Long after I'm gone.

Four days after I turned fifteen in 2018, I was sexually harassed by someone I didn't even know. The police couldn't do anything because he had gone back to his own country. This made me feel so worthless as I felt like no one gave a crap. Also my Great Granddad passed away and this hurt a lot as I was really close to him. This lad took advantage of me as he was 18 and I had not long turned 15. He took advantage of me the week my mum was in hospital as she nearly died from an asthma attack. This was my first time, and recently my boyfriend had broken up with me when he said he loved me. He brought up the lad who took advantage in our argument and he said I was selfish when I almost died in his room from an asthma attack as I didn't hear what he said when he said I love you.

Honestly as I read through this it made me think over my life. I can relate to this so much. It hurts knowing others feel the same way. I never know how to get my word out there but with this poem it gave me the motivation to find someone that knows how I feel and talk it all over and better myself. Thank you for writing this. You did a wonderful job and its one of my favorite poems. I hope you have came a long way and have gotten better.
