  1. 41. Inside

    • By Annie Porter
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2016

    I've been depressed for about 2 years now, and no one found it out on their own. I had to tell them. I don't understand how they couldn't have seen it. This poem is about how I felt and what people should've seen.

    The lies I tell,
    the truth I cry,
    the secrets I keep,
    they're locked up inside.

    It's a poem that truly tells my story. Some friends of mine still don't notice that I am depressed. While in my classroom, I hide my tears. But when someone notices me, I quickly dry them up....

  2. 42. State Of Mind

    • By Sarah
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    This poem is about depression/self harm and how much it can effect a person.

    Depression is a state of mind

    it is a crime
    to cut the throat of a beloved soul

  3. 43. Fear

    • By Katelyn Sherwood
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2016

    Why are we afraid of ourselves? We go into such a deep state of depression that we don't know how to move on. If we could only find the light in the dark, we'd be all right.

    Does anyone know the price I've paid?

    The things running through my head never seem to end.
    I want to get out,

  4. 44. The Truth

    • By Caley House
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013

    I have come up with this poem as I am in eating disorder recovery. This has given me the experience, and I really just needed to get my feeling out onto the page. But don't let that fool you; I also put a lot of work into it! Also, this was originally meant to be a read out lot poem.

    Slippery, sweet, syrupy words sticking in my brain
    A lie
    They won't go away no matter how much I try to send them back to where they came from
    A lie

    This is about me trying to stop cutting for my boyfriend.

    There is a girl

    She used to cry
    You wonder why

  6. 46. A Hidden Horror

    • By Jenna Burnell
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2009

    I'm 14 years old, and I have a problem with cutting myself. I never meant to hurt anyone but myself when I wrote this. Right now my parents still do not know that I cut myself, but I plan to tell them soon. My friends are very concerned with my physical health. They're afraid that I will -cut myself to death-. But as I said, I'm only 14. I'm in 8th grade, and I have a problem with cutting..

    Everyone has problems,
    Some may be worse and some not as bad.
    But when it comes to hurting yourself,
    All you feel is sad...

    I once did cut myself with a scissors. The other time I stapled the space in the middle of my fingers. My parents found out and thank god they understood what I was going through.

  7. 47. Strength

    • By Teagan Delgado
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2012

    I hope anyone who can relate to the beginning will take this as a push to get help. You deserve to live this wonderful life and people love you. So please, ask for help! Put your pride aside! It's worth it, people want to help.

    She hurts and she cries
    No one sees the depression in her eyes
    The little girl smiles for everyone to see
    While she asks herself "why is it so hard to be me?"

  8. 48. Trapped Inside

    • By Ashtyn White
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I don't really know if this is a poem, but it's just how it is for me. It describes what I am going through right now, how hard my life is. How different I am from before. Nobody knows the real me, only the angel on the outside. But beneath that, there's more.

    Trapped inside this body,
    Imprisoned here against my will.
    No choice my own.
    Every move decided by this angel who has taken possession of this body.

  9. 49. Complications

    • By Natalie Mervin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2012

    I haven't been through half the things I describe in the poem I wrote, but I do know that lots of people do go through stuff like abuse, self harm, feeling unloved etc. I've been a cutter since I was 14 and it's hard to stop but then I think to myself about all the people who want to give their life away and realize I might not have it as bad as I thought. I write poetry like this so people know they're not alone and there are people in the world like them.

    Do you wanna know her?
    Do you wanna try?
    Her life's a little complicated

  10. 50. Breaks Me

    • By Raeanne Laudato
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011

    My name is Raeanne, I'm eighteen. When I was fourteen years old, I attempted suicide. The razor was my friend, not my enemy. I'm not afraid to share my story, to share what I've been through. I see all these kids now who are dealing with what I went through, the bullying, the torment, the name calling, the feeling that's there no help. But there is, and I'm here to instill hope in their hearts, to show them that they're not alone, though they may think they are. There's always someone who cares.

    I walk through these halls, I take note of it all.
    I notice the tans, the fads and even those designer bags.
    I hear the names being called, I notice the lies.
    I feel the heavy atmosphere full of rumors and hidden lives.

    • By Lkglauren
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2016

    I have been struggling with depression, self-harm, anxiety, and eating disorders, so I turned to writing poetry to help me. This poem is about disguising my problems while wanting someone to notice/care.

    She is skillful at deceiving.
    No one even has a clue.
    Her pretty words are weaving
    Throughout the souls of me and you,

  13. 53. Do You Care

    • By Cassidy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I'm twelve years old, and I live with my mom. I honestly love my mom, but I have come to realize she doesn't care about my depression, and it hurts. I can't get out of it and it suffocates me. Since I don't live with anyone else, I have no one to go to. This is my poem about my life.

    I sit and wait for you to be there.
    Sometimes I wonder if you even care.
    I sit and I cry waiting for the end.
    All you do is sit there and pretend

  15. 55. I Must Be Lying

    • By Maria Vieyra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2013

    This is just one of the many poems that I write sometimes. I'm not currently suicidal, though. This was a while ago. I hope you like it. Please comment!

    Sometimes I wish I could admit things
    Even if it's all just a lie.
    Sometimes I wish I could forget things,
    But memories never die.
