Why? - Poem by Madison Farley

The color,
A bright alluring red
It’s all over the sheets of my bed
I stare down with a look of pure satisfaction
Amazed with my acts of bodily mutilation
My mother in total disbelief
Notices as I grow nervous
She asks why? Why? Why?
When I tried to reply
Something inside me began to die
She thought I was happy
She thought I was content
She felt I was fine in my head
Little did she know all I was feeling
Was the want to be dead
Mentally spun out of control
I too begin to cry
And wonder why? Why? Why?
Why is it I feel hated?
Why is it I feel broken and betrayed?
Why is it that I want to die?
And leave my family alone to sit and cry
And wonder why? Why? Why?
Right now… they suspect nothing
Unaware of the fact that I’m lying here
