I maynot be where iwant t be rite now, but at least im not where i usedto be, when i want to give up hope whispers try again


I looked at the blade today
and I didn't feel the need
It's been so many years
Since I have felt this freedom
I put the blade down and walked away
I hope I don't ever go back
Another addiction broken
Another dependence unspoken
Another truth turned to past
Scars have faded
Short sleeves are freedom
Only a small trace will forever remain
I cannot stop it, or control it, but I can shoulder this pain
I am strong enough
I am brave enough
On the outside I was born tough
Scars prove that much
Now it's time the inside catches up

I know the poem is sorta depressing, but it describes a really hard part in my life.I hope someone who may have gone through this reads this and gains some type of strength from it.

Because we are all looking for the complete definition of love (Beau Sia)

I love this! I really really really love this! I never cut, but I thought about it and perhaps, tried it once, but I did find strength to get through my situation. Once again, I LOVE this! Great job and keep writing! 

p.s. 5 stars!!!
