A Broken Razor

Her face was worn, her body torn,
she wished that she was never born.
Pain in her cries, scars on her thighs,
eyes full of hurt and a mouth full of lies.

Her screams silent, her mind violent;
her blade was her only compliant.
Another slit, just one more hit,
another reason to commit.

It was rough, she had enough;
the world around her was much too tough.
She put a gun to her head, bled and bled,
congratulations, society, she’s dead.
