STOP Cutting Poem

Poem About Beauty Inside

Going through a hard time, and parents don't understand. I'm not being bullied or anything like other people out there I'm just very depressed and emotional, but if your are stay strong and stop self harm, I'm trying so should you. 14 years old, poem wrote in about 10 minutes.

she doesn't understand her beauty inside
so she cries
All them tears that fall from her eyes
And the pain she tries to hide

A few know about her thoughts
And the scars on her body
from the people who taunt

She wants to stop her only relief
But with all the grief
she feels within
it's harder to stop
Then it is to begin

Her parents don't understand
And so they just shout
And make her feel even more worthless
And full of doubt

She tried to explain a thousand times
But is never able to seem to find
What will make them listen
Instead of fight.

so this poem is ending
Lets all find a alternative
from the sharp tools across our skin
And hopefully you will notice
All the beauty within.
