I hate how I look;
The cuts,
The fat,
The bags beneath my eyes.
I hate who I am;
The hurt,
The angst
The endless torrent of lies.

Sometimes I do things I know I shouldn't
And I don't do things I know I should,
Only that I could and would,
So do
Because that's how people work.

Everyone has motives
And nobody is selfless
Only helpless
In this world that doesn't want
To understand.

Everyone's gonna die
And I'm not gonna lie;
Sometimes that thought is the only thing
That gets me through the day.

I miss my old razor blade;
Scissors don't go deep enough
This red isn't my favorite shade;
I like it purer,
More heartfelt
Then I could be surer
That I'm a threat to myself.

I'm trying to cut down,
As apposed to cutting everything else,
But I doubt I'll ever stop
Because every slash,
Every bloody drop,
The whole crimson rash,
Reminds me;
I'm still alive
And I am
Strong.
Meh :)

I go through random poems here and I find this. You really are strong. And talented. I've never heard of you and will probably never meet you, but I can tell that you're strong. And stunning. And just amazing.
So here is to you, you lovely poet.
Here's to you.

how sad. have you ever actually read the whole Bible for yourself?

:iconcorporaterockwhore:
CorporateRockWhore Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I don't think it's sad. As a kid I used to be extremely religious, I used to do readings in church and everything, but then one day I just kinda realized that I didn't agree with it at all. For example, the bible implies that sin is the fault of women, it also portrays women as weak or evil in numerous circumstances. It condemns homosexuality, a large reason why I disagree with the bible. It also disregards all scientific fact (i.e. there is solid, sound proof that we are decedents from apes).

I do, however, respect people no matter what their religion/race/sexuality is. :)

I can see that you are merely repeating things heard. Since your statements are mostly without foundation. If you are open minded there is a book i would like for you to consider: Is there a Creator who cares about you (or the equivalent brochure) published by Jehovah's Witnesses. You might be surprised at what you can learn. Take care

I'm not, I'm saying things I decided for myself. My statements are without foundation?! I'm sorry, but that's kinda rich coming from someone letting some invisible magic man in the sky dictate his life to him.

Also, I am open-minded. It appears to me that you are the one who is close-minded here, especially seeing as you refuse to accept anyone else's ideas/ideals if they don't comply with yours.
