A Poem by Audrey Bowers
"

A poem about depression and self harm. It's a real issue and sometimes all the person needs is someone to listen.

"
Listen to her,
sobbing quietly late at night
Her heart had been broken
a few too many times.

Her mother doesn't get it.
She thinks "If she wanted to, 
she could quit this."
But the girl's addicted.

She's addicted to her sorrow
and she's addicted to the pain.
She's addicted to seeing her own blood
and the beautiful silver metal on the blade.

And yet society says she's the one to blame
but in all reality she's the one who's in for a world of pain
she just wanted someone to listen
but sadly no one ever came.

I enjoy this poem because it explains the core of most teenagers, and others who harm themselves. I have a rough history with self harm and most of my poetry is about that, and the way it feels, how the craving for it can consume someones mind. This is a beautiful poem. Keep it up.

No problem. You have a great way of showing there's more to something than what someone thinks.

Depression if not controlled can be very harmful and devastating. We need that window of hope to see the sunrays...Bravo............
