I scratch,
White marks appear.
As they turn red,
Out pours all my anger.

I smash,
My head against walls.
Pain soars through my body,
Releasing all my mental pain.

I burn,
Red marks on my skin.
They bring freedom,
Setting me free from the fires of hell.

Hurting no one but myself.
Finding mental freedom from physical pain.
Red, white, purple, blue.
Anger, rejection, upset, pain.

People say it's wrong,
They look down their noses.
Only making things worse,
Friends leave, strangers frown.

So,
I can't cope with my mental pain,
But i've never inflicted pain on YOU.
The title says it all really. A new light on self harm for those who don't understand

Think about what the starving children in Africa, China and India who have gone through so many hardships would just think of this.  Sorry, no offense to anyone.

thinking about starving children does not make me feel any better... it just makes me feel worse and pathetic for not being strong enough to handle things. when people say things like that or "suck it up, it could be worse", i dont see how that could help anyone feel better... no offense to you either. just my view on things.

well...no offense but that's a fact and if you feel worse then it's not my problem (again, no offense)
I tried to make people realise facts.  If you feel bad, how bad do you think the children who are starving feel?

LOOOOVE YOUR PROFILE PICTURE THOUGH
