**let Go, Let Go** - Poem by Alicia Roseberry

the words they say hurt,
life burns,
so hard to keep that razor,
away from my skin,
away from the scars,
the need to create new ones,
it grows by the minute,
so hard to control,
my aunts,
so worried,
of what i might do next,
i keep my will,
i throw the razor out the window,
i tell myself,
let go, let go,
dont do this,
you're not perfect,
you need to,
let go, let go,
of these feellings,
sit quietly and just,
let go, let go.

    i love this poem. it really jump out of the page at me cuz ive been there and ive done that. i almost died from cuttin 2 year ago i dont cut anymore because life is precious. u have just got to get threw the hard stuff to ther to the good stuff. i enjoyed this poem. i know that adrenaline rush i was 16 years old 2 years ago. it didnt get better fast but i had to have time to heal. i felt alone because i was in cps where they take almost everything u love away. i think u should really read some of my poems and see my expirences with life. anyways read the poems called: hopes gone, and while i was in cps custody (Report) Reply
