Self Harm

  Self Harm is a scary trait seen in people with mental illness. It’s something both hard to describe and explain to people who have never experienced it. I used to cut myself. Most often I cut my forearm with a knife used for model building. Although the scars have faded a bit over time they […]

Scars

I carry my scars with me Proudly like a badge Proof I paid my fees They show my courage   Even if they fade I will still see them I remember the blade Others may condemn   They are a part of me, a past I built from
