Please Don't Cut

Please Don't Cut

A Poem by Aswin R Prasad
"

Self Harm

"
For all of you who ain't comfortable in your own skin,
Fighting everyday just to win.
No! Just to survive,
Hurtin' yourself everyday just to feel alive. 
Please don't cut . 
This rhyme is for givin' some hope for you to get outta this rut. 
Believe me , I've been there,
I've been out. Gimme a shout
And lemme know that you've fought .
The temporary relief you get,
The instant regret. I've felt it all.
So please don't cut.
"You're fat, you're ugly"
You can fight or you can flee!
Don't let words hurt you.
People who care are so few.
For all of those who've had enough,
I think of you as an angel in the rough.
So put away the razors,
Put away the blades.
Even if it is late,
You can always see the light. 
Open your doors and know that I'm right.
For all those who feel alone,
Your only friend is not the knife.
I thought the same ,I went insane, 
And nearly died of shame!
Once you lose it, you might die ,
You can't lie even if you try,
And you definitely can't hide!
Don't feel tired. Stand up strong.
Feel revived and please don't cut.
Just try to get outta this s****y rut!
Nothing's gonna change,
You'll just destroy yourself with your rage.
You can either faint 
Or choose to paint,
Your own world,The bright world 
The one you've always wanted to live in.
So please just don't cut,Just get outta this rut!

This is a good message to post to those thinking about or actually cutting themselves. In their goal to "feel something" they are setting themselves up for feeling horrible when they get older and have to wear long shirts in the heat. It is wrong to cut.

Man, this is relatable because I have been through this and for anyone who is also going through depression or anxiety, do not cut! Please! You are beautiful and wonderful in anyway. So this poem is meaningful to me and I wish I had a friend who told me in the first place not to do. Also, some people who cut do it because they feel it is the only thing they can control. I understand that. If you are reading this, please have HOPE (Hold On, Pain Ends). It's my motto to get by and I wear a certain ring to remind me everyday to keep breathing and keep on living.

Thank you for writing on this -- it's a tough thing for many to even admit happens -- oddly, blood letting was once prescribed by physicians as a cure to many ailments, including psychological ones -- I wonder, if psychiatrists really analysed this if they could come up with more concrete help than labelling it as simple self mutilation. Anyway, enlightened and thoughtful write.

Thank you so much .
First: stanzas serve the same purpose as paragraphs.

Next, if you're going to rhyme, then rhyme. Starting with rhyme gives reader's expectations, which you then violate. And if you do rhyme, couplets, such as you use, here aren't as interesting as a more complex setup, like rhyming alternating lines.

One resource I often recommend is the excerpt to Stephen Fry's, The Ode Less traveled. It's a great introduction to the techniques of poetry of all kinds/
