Time Will Pass

Life is something you cannot fake
you live and learn from each mistake
Sunny days or cloudy skies
Happy Greetings or Sad Goodbyes
So don't sit by and let time pass
For live each day like your last

This is something that you must do
if you expect to grow and stick it through
All the sadness, all the pain, wash
it away like the rain.
Fast or slow, whatever your pace
take your time, life is not a race.

I have a best friend and her name is Lilley. When I met her I found out that she also had a problem with cutting like me. One day her boyfriend Robert, wanted to talk to me he asked why I cut myself and I said that I have a few problems. In the past I was molested three times. and then about a week later I met him and we became so close, he's is now considered my brother. We mess around a lot and when I need someone to talk to I have Lilley or Robert to talk to. Now because of Lilley and Robert I don't feel depressed as much. But in school, people stare at me and say that the only reason I cut is to hide the needle marks. What they mean by that is they think I do all kinds of drugs. With the help of my two friends I made a group called "Raise Your Voice". and that means "say no to peer pressure". A lot of people have gotten in contact with me. My group is 6th-12th grade. I have made a change in everything and I was also awarded by Disney.
