Feel - Poem by Katelyn McKay

I sit down in my dark room and hide,
About to commit mass suicide,
I stare down at the blade in my hand,
Wondering if death is more grand,
Next I look over at my scared wrist,
I feel fear and anger as I tighten my fist,
I try to over come the urge and win the fight,
But I don’t think that I will win tonight,
I think about the things that have been said,
About how they make me wish that I was dead,
I think about the names that I am called,
And how at first I was so appalled,
But now I’m starting to think what you say is true,
As I think more and more I start to really hate you.
I tell myself things will turn around,
That my hidden pain wont be found,
I go to school with a fake smile on my face,
While deep inside feeling like a total disgrace,
I make it seem like I feel great or good,
When really I feel so misunderstood.
I walk around needing to cry,
And I live my life wanting to die,
I feel like a part of me is gone,
Like a part of my soul has been withdrawn,
I feel lost and scared,
Like no one has ever cared,
And now in less then a second my addiction wins,
My hand moves and the blade cuts the skin,
I just let go of my tight hold,
See this is what happens when emotions unfold.

    oh... And one other thing to keep in mind... What anybody says about you, speaks more of them than it does of you! ! !

    Simply cry, when you need to cry... And only you can disallow the voices that make you wish you were dead.
