"Are you with me, or will you fall to your knees?" - We came as romans-


I see past the smiles and the lies,
I see the tears, I hear the cries.
I see the lines, that mark their thighs,
I see the fake, I know the highs.
I see what they hide, the crimson stains,
All the blood, that has left their veins.
I see the stars, I see the death.
I see creation, and I see your last breath.
My eyes are weary, but they work well,
Any person can clearly see that this is Hell.
You don’t have to go far, you don’t even have to run.
The end is right here, I see down the barrel of the gun.
I’ve been there, so I know.
I once hit rock bottom, nothing below.
I know the guilt, and I know the pain.
I know the feeling, I fought a sick brain.
The thoughts hurt, they picked and burned,
The end was right insight, that’s what I yearned.
But something changed, I learned how to fight,
So I thank God, I didn’t take my life that night.
I’m still here, so I share it all with you,
They say the truth hurts, so listen to what is true.
They need our help, they need our love,
I'm done watching kids leave for heaven above.
This is a warning, beware.
Things will only change if people are made aware.

Just something I wrote about kids struggling with self-harm : it's such an important topic that most people fail to realize. There are a lot of kids out there that need help, I just wish most could understand better.

well I posted a pic on here and once it gets through I'll comment the link c: I'm so sorry for your loss I can't imagine that. I suffer from Severe Major Depressive Disorder (you can look it up) and it sucks. Depression isn't fun especially this much. I really hope things get better for you <3

I'm sorry to hear you had to go to the ER :\  I am glad to hear you haven't cut since then though, that is good. A pretty simple tip is to listen to music if you get an urge or go be aroud people. You won't be drawn to cut if you are in the pressence of other people. The urges may be there, but you won't want to do it in front of them. I know a few people that have made some great accomplishments arise by doing this. And I struggle with depression. Really bad depression so it seems. I just went to my grandmothers funeral yesterday :\ she died exactly 8 months after my best friend died. He died Feb. 6th, and she died Oct. 6th. Pretty rough having those dates intermingle.. I'm so glad to see you are taking hope from this though <3 that means a lot.  You aren't alone (: that's for sure. Just stay strong and keep positive <3 and I wish I could see that written on your arm ^-^ that's awesome. Thank you so much for this <3

thank you <3 I was admitted into the ER on the 2nd because of it (don't worry no stitches or anything) and I haven't cut since then. I'm really trying to hang in there and to know a fantastic, amazing guy like you have suffered with this (weither it be with depression or anything) really inspires me to be stronger. In your honor I'm going to write _hopeless_ on my arm to remind myself to stay strong <3 :) my gift to you
