In Response To The Girl I Used To Be

Where do I even begin

How can I pardon every one of your sins?

Self hatred that grows so deep

Something that cannot be ignored

even when asleep

Dreams filled with the end of life

Everything gone with one driven knife

An art she practiced for so long

Her life is like music but

It is just a sad song

One day she goes

So unexpected

Her cut and craft is finally


But now I am changing

Rearranging the fate laid out by my illness

Leaving it frozen in shame standing in stillness

Please don’t be afraid to tell mom and dad

Leaving them is only passing on the sad

Speak up and speak out

Don’t let it all boil

You are a flower pushing fresh

from all that dark soil

This is for you

The girl I once was

I’ll be right here beside you

watching you learn

Self love
