"Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfections." -Unknown

I hurt myself.
I don’t why.
It makes me smile,
then makes me cry.
I pull out my happiness
when pulling out my hair.
I stare at the strands on the floor
and think did I really put them there?
They it has a name,
something menacing and wrong.
They say to just stop
but I am not that strong.
I want to kill this enemy.
I want to hunt her down.
I pull the trigger only to find
I’m the one dead on the ground.

I'm currently stuggling with this impulse disorder. I wrote this poem to express some turmoil I felt inside then thought it might be good enough to post.
