Why not me?

Somebody tell me why what I do is so wrong?

Breathing in air that keeps me calm.

Drinking liquids to help me cry.

Doing these things so I don't have to face my own self hate.

I know you've both tried this before,

so why not me?

Numbing the pain, hoping it'll go away.

Doing everything in my power to feel better.

Yet when I do this,

some unknown guilt sets down in me.

But tell me,

why are these measures that do little to hurt me,

considered so badly?

Why should I get in trouble for helping my self to a new kind of therapy?

It's just how I handle things.

Hiding anxiety inside of me.

Letting it go with a short breathe of air,

as if the world is finally free.

So tell me,

what is so wrong with me?
