Relapse - Poem by Naomi Short

Why do people hate people who self harm?
It's only a coping method to help us feel calm.
It's like an addiction we just can't stop, some of us do but we relapse and go back to it and think oh shit.

It leaves us scars which we cover so no one would know,
but we only started because we was feeling low.

why do people hate people who self harm
we only do it to help us feel calm.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have always self harmed since I was younger, it's a coping method that I use. I have also worked with other young people who have previous self harmed and relapsed so some of what I have mentioned is some of my own experiences and some of the other young peoples I hope this isn't triggering.
