Funny Poems: 304 / 500

Self Harm

It’s funny how you judge me
For how I release my pain
You look at me and think
That I must be going insane

But who are you to say
That what I chose to do is wrong
The one thing that may have saved my life
Has been no good all along?

Maybe I should follow you
And sit back and have a drink?
Then maybe for a little while
I wouldn’t have to think

And then because of the alcohol
Of my body I may lose control

But that’s ok to you
Because it’s every ones else solution
And of course what I do is a delusion

Even though it picks me up when I’m down
And all you do is drown,
You’re sorrows, only to face them again tomorrow

I agree completely, I use cutting as a coping mechanism, i dont like talking to people as i dont like putting my feelings on someone else, so i do that and it helps, even if only for a short while. This poem is amazing and its not fair for people to judge because me self harm, its our body and much healthier than drinking and smoking.
