Blood is ink that flows in my veins.

Blood dripping from my arms

stains on the carpet begin to appear

I think about my family and how im a dissappoinment to them.

Vertical lines run down my arm

Im in a locked caged trying to escape but no one

will help me.

No one.

What inspired me most was that this is a very common issue that teens go through each day.

Hello, Sabrina. I, unfortunately, can relate to this poem quite a lot. If you are struggling with this personally, I can say from experience that there is always someone to help you, you just have to let them in and give them the information they need to treat you. I went two years without telling anyone, and when they found out, I felt so much relief... They helped me feel better, and I found medications, therapy, and a psychiatric doctor that made every ounce of difference. Please remember that you are more than what your urges tell you you are. I believe in you, and everyone else going through this, and though it is tough, there is the sun, beaming above every cloud, waiting to be discovered again.
