  1. 81. Cuts For A Life

    • By Danni
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    About cutting. I went through the stage, but I'm out of it now, so this is for others who know what it's like. This poem is quite vivid, but if I can get through, so can you.

    From start to finish I wonder why
    The cuts look good in this messed up lie
    The blood that trickles down my arm
    People all stare at the girl who self-harms.

  2. 82. Burning Sensation

    • By Eboni Allisha Uneik Church
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2008

    This poem came from my heart. It may not be much to you, but is was very serious to me. You see, I hold things in and I shouldn't. And for those who just don't know how hard it is, there's a time when you can no longer hold them.

    This emotion runs deep,
    Deeper than words can speak.
    A burning sensation held deep inside her heart.
    She knew she had to feel it some day from the start.

  3. 83. Unheard Whispers

    • By Kayyyyyydia
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2017

    Feeling of having to hide who you are from other people because they won't understand the truth.

    I try and try, but no one can see

    That I'm hurt, that I'm broken,
    That I'm not even me.

  4. 84. Morning Birds Of Love

    • By Johnny Hartwell
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    Well I'm only 14 but have been through a lot that no one can see. Poetry is a way to express my true feelings. I shared with friends and family and they said I should try to publish them. So I typed this one up here and if I get good responses then I will post more. I have always loved poetry. It gives me a way I can share my true feelings. I lost a true loved one and this is about them and how I feel.

    It's amazing to me
    How cruel love can be
    To someone who has been through it all
    Just to fall

  5. 85. Forevermore

    • By Caroline Olin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2013

    I wrote this when I was feeling particularly dark and sad. I was inspired by the feelings that I acquired from the death of my dad. I hope you think it is good.

    I look up into the clear sky.
    The tears run like liquid crystals down my face.
    Because of this, the angels cry,
    Because I have this life to waste.

  6. 86. Stay Strong

    • By Samantha
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    I am 17 years old. I have been very sick for the last 7 years. I have something called NF1, it makes you very sick at times. I go to a lot of doctors, I have had brain surgery, I can't get out in the heat it makes me really sick. The bad thing about this is my older sister is 18 years old and she's has the same thing. She's always sick, but she loves to draw and can very well. We both are very sick, but the Lord blessed us with other things we can do. I write poems.....and she draws, and we both are living and have a great family...so what more could we ask for?

    I have this illness
    that I've suffered from for so long
    and I don't know how,
    but I've got to find a way to stay strong,

  7. 87. Imperfection

    • By Carlson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2017

    This poem is an outline of the torture I went through in my junior high years. Depression led to eating disorders, and I soon came to a point where I considered suicide. But I found peace with therapy and family support. I am a lot better now and hope to inspire those who think that being perfect is everything. Just be yourself!

    The image I face in the mirror shoots me with worried looks.
    "Lose weight," a voice cold as a snake hisses.
    The words rattle in my skull.

  8. 88. Disappear

    • By Brooke Waldon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2016

    This poem basically shows that being alone isn't fun. Everyone needs a shoulder to cry on. It doesn't feel nice to be alone.

    It seems that my only option is to cry,
    But day by day I keep asking myself why.
    Why am I always sad?
    Why am I always mad?

    I'm crazy about a guy who likes someone else, and I don't know what to do

    I waited a year for him
    And lost him in two days
    My fate looks so grim
    'Cause now my heart is torn in so many ways

    I have had the same feeling. I have always hid my true feelings for the sake of others. I've cared more about the happiness of others than my own, and it has led me down a very scary path.

  11. 91. I'm Your Friend

    • By Shayna
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015

    My friend is very upset since she moved, and she is discussing suicide, which is very upsetting because she was my friend since birth, but now I hardly know her. I am bad with words, but with poetry I can really express myself, so I sent her this poem. I hope you like it.

    I'm your friend
    So I'm crying for you
    Because this time is blue
    I'm praying for you

  12. 92. Black Abyss

    • By Nicole Steiner
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2020

    I wrote this poem after my friends left me. They told me my problems were too much. I thought I was unlovable, so I slowly sank into depression. I just had to put this poem down before it was too late.

    I walk this black abyss
    With no place to go.
    It's surprising how I miss
    All that I used to know.

  15. 95. Living In A Nightmare

    • By Desiray
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    The story behind my poem is teen love and how we get sucked into it so easily. I was in a relationship that I would do anything for him. We broke up and this poem just lets my feelings out and what I've needed to say.

    Loving him is something I'll always do
    I pray that he still loves me too
    We were together for so long
    For us to only find out that we were not that strong...

  20. 100. True Friend

    • By Frikkie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012

    A story of a child that was emotionally hurt hundreds of times and therefore became the horrible object/thing he is now. He no longer trusts people, he no longer wants people to communicate with him, he is just the shadow in the background.

    My friend
    Although your mind is corrupt with death and murder.
    Even though your lungs are filled with tar and tobacco.
    Even though your kidneys are strained with liter after liter of alcohol....
