it wont be nice
You wont be able to look people in the eyes.
those who don’t know will make jokes
unaware of the emotions it evokes.
someone will find out
and they will ask what its all about
when they know it will hurt them more
than its ever hurt you before
The road is tough
Rough and grim
I‘ve been through it a lot
Glad that I did
Glamorized by society
Everyone knows but nobody hears
Reading stories about my biggest fearsTaylor
Self-harm is a big issue, because although there is more awareness its being glamorized in society. This poem also I wrote because people don’t understand that somethings they post can trigger someone who has gone through it, or when someone says it as a joke, it can deeply bring back feeling for those who have dealt or are dealing with this problem.
