I can say the road to recovery has been a bitch
Who knew how hard it'd be to make the switch
From the bloody palms with a razor blade
To the helpful hand giving aid.

Put the Razor down and get some help
There is no more need to scream and yelp
I've been hurt too much
And lost what you call trust.

Does my story end here?
No,
because I'm strong

I'll overcome this
and one day,
I'll smile
and it will be real

till then I'll carry on
and I won't let people bring me down
