Just A Poem

Cutters Cut
Carvers Carve
What's The Big Deal???
It's Bodily Harm.

You Do It Once You DO It Twice,
Thewn It Starts To Control Your Life.

You Think It's Cool You Think It's Nice,
But It's Just ZGoing To Make A Scar For Life.

You Start To Cut Out Comes The Blood,
You Think It's Not Deep But It Starts To Run.

You Start To Get Scared You Don't Know What To Do,
Should You Tell Your Mom Or Just Count To Two.

It Finally Stops Your Not Scared Anymore,
So You Count To Two And Do A Few More.

You Like The Pain It Relieves Your Stress,
But What You Just Did You Put Your Body To The Test.

You Cut One Last Time They're All Down Your Arms,
But This Ones Too Late You Get Dizzy And Faint.

Your Mom Hears Your Fall And She Runs Up To See,
Her Daughter On The Floor Fighting To Breathe.

Who Would Have Thought That Be Her Last Breath.
But It Was And Now You See,
That Cutting And Carving Is A Dangerous Way To Live.

So With That In Mind And This Poem As Well Please Dont Go And Cut Or Carve On Yourself!~

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
