Teen Life Lesson Poem

Just Because I Wear Pink

Just getting some words out there. I wrote this a long time ago, while I was in a psychiatrist's center, after getting stitches. Although I was in a bad mood the day I wrote this, I'm still proud of how far I've come on the road to my recovery. ---Luckily, I've found a way to overcome this. I was treated for my drug and alcohol abuse and my cutting. I've only been with one guy, and he is still my current boyfriend. I do still have issues trying not to think about my ex and the hitting, but with the help of my boyfriend, my friends, and my therapist I'm getting over it. I'm much more happy now and I've left my old life of bad influences behind, and I'm starting my new one. Writing has helped, and maybe in time I can put my entire poetry book on here....

Just because I cut, doesn't mean I'm emo.
Just because I laugh, doesn't mean I'm happy.
Just because I wear pink, doesn't mean I'm preppy.
Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean I don't still hurt.
Just because I'm not a virgin, doesn't mean I'm a slut.
Just because the bruises are gone, doesn't mean I don't still feel it.

I have always been called a whore. In school I was a fast ass (quit to talk) girl. I never let anybody bring me down. NOBODY! And that still didn't mean I had nothing to hide. I was scared and hurt of what would happen the next day. I am emo I can say that. I do wear pink and purple I have no choice, but it's hard to tell people you self harm, because they'll slap or punch me and tell me to stop. But it's like they just wanna hurt me.. .
