Scared For Life


Do you know how it feels to know your only friend is a razer blade? The sole object in your life that you can trust but even that will hurt you. A simple piece of metal that comes to a fine point can cause a person so much damage. Some people never recover from the traumatic pain that this one object can cause. If the past is what shapes the future then we were all doomed from the start. The past is very well gone but the scars still remain as a reminder of all the pain we have went through. When you look in the mirror you no longer see a strong girl, you see another fool who has fallen victim to the blade. A girl who couldn't handle the cruel thing we call life. So she pierces her skin with a razor she calls her relief in hopes she will release these damaging words that have been spoken. All of the torment and pain she has endured has been left behind as a vertical line permanently engraved in her skin, knowing they will never blend into her skin again. Each cut has a lifetime of memories and a heartache of pain behind it. You may see this as a sad story but no, this is not the sad story. The sad story is that such a beautiful girl was drove to harming herself because of the way society saw her.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
