Cutting Yourself


Who says that cutting yourself is emo? , cutting your self's insane?
Cutting yourself to me, is simply releasing the pain,
Releasing all of the anger, cutting is a way to cope,
When all faith is lost, cutting gives me hope,
When everything is broken, when I can't stop the tears,
The blade is always there, it's been my friend for years,
Pressing deeper and deeper, sinking into my skin,
Cutting is suicidal words, that I no longer can keep in,
Whispering 'do it now', just end all of your sorrow,
Express all of your anger, you can kill yourself tomorrow,
Who cares what they say? , cutting is anything but insane,
Cutting yourself to me, is simply releasing the pain,

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
