Dealing With Self-Hate

I am fifteen years old, and for years, I struggled with self-hate. No one knew since I hide it so well. I was alone and I had nowhere to go. I was always there for so many people, but no one was there for me. I was so lost, and no one cared. I'm so sorry for all those people who went through the same thing! Much love!

Who Could Ever Love Me?

©

Published: September 29, 2020

When I look at myself, I see nothing good.
I see all the flaws that no one else should.
I wear a mask
To hide the pain
That always resides on my face.

They tell me I'm beautiful,
But how would they know
The secrets I have yet to tell?
The guilt that eats me up inside
About the things I've done
Each and every night.

They don't see the things that I hide
Behind the walls inside my mind.
They don't see the flaws on my skin.
For if they did, they would think I'm a sin.

So, I tell myself, who will ever love me
When no one ever hears my pleas?
Who could understand my broken thoughts,
The hate in my gut that's like a knot?

Maybe one day my thoughts will change,
But for now, they still seem to reign.
But I will keep fighting each night,
Because if I don't, then how else can I find the light?
