Description: I'm tired of all this poor me crap. If you are some rich 15 year old kid who gets whatever your heart desires then you have no reason to cut yourself up. Maybe I am just mad at society for offering this up as a good solution. Take some pills, lose some weight, cut yourself, stop the pain. What a load of bs.
Mutilation for Reputation -------------------------------------------
In this crazy messed up world that we live in
Where socitey makes it okay to harm yourself
I find more and more people cutting just because they think it is cool
Slicing up their skin
Before even thinking about the consequences
I've seen 13 year old girls on this site
Talking about having sex and dicing themselves up
What pain can these people be going through
That makes them feel they have to do these things
I maybe a hypocrit
For I do the same thing (cutting)
Just to mask the pain
Mutilation for reputation
What does it take to be cool
Scaring yourself, marring yourself
Just to look like a fool
Don't feel like that. You're right, you know. I honestly think that there are some 13 year old people out there that really do have problems. That really are so numb they have to cut to feel and see the blood to know they are alive. I just don't think a lot of them do it. There is this girl named Amber at my school. She cuts herself just to get attention. She always makes sure she wears stuff so that people can see, but only certain people. She uses it to try to get some attention or sympathy. The truth is, if she wasn't such a [censored], someone might giver her some attention. It pisses me off to no end. I guess because I know what it's like to hurt and be dead inside. She evidently hasn't the slightest idead of it. Her newest kick is eating speed pills and diet pills. *rolls eyes* How irritating. This was brilliant writing. It expressed a lot of truth. Good job.
This is an awsome poem it makes so much sense when a lot of teenage girls are out there cutting themselves...it's not supposed to be a "fashion" Or shouldn't do it to be "cool" Great Job...I like it alot
Holy crap. o.o Every one on this site should read this. It's so effing true. I'm glad you wrote this, LeAnna! <3 And, omg. The title is effing awesome to me. xD Good job. I love the honesty and the realism. Like, yes.
I love you. Thank you for that. I hope my sis and cousin read this...it's so honest. I went through a lot when I was that age, and I never resorted to cutting or drugs or suicide. I know that people do have problems, but in my honest opinion, that is never the answer. It's stupid and selfish, and as you stated, it makes you look like a fool. If people didn't make such a big deal out of it, no one would do it. You have guts to admit to it yourself, but also to know that it's stupid to do it. Yay for you!
wow this is by far the most honest thing i've ever read. more people need to read this.. maybe they'd learn a thing or two about the truth of pain. it's disgusting that people really are willing to hurt themselves for the attention because their lives are so "terrible" and because "no one understands". i'd love to see them step into our shoes and feel what true hurt is. all together great write!
you are completly right. i know people who live in the middle of suburbia and their parents drive mini vans and they have every ammenity in life but they still pose as 'helpless souls' it's all completly and utter crap. they think it's cool to act as if they have all this hurt and they deck themselves out in black but when someone who actually is feeling all this pain that they supposedly have comes up to them and try to talk about it they run. scared completly out of their minds.cutting,dropping acid, blow, none of that stuff is the answer. i know that now. i'm glad you wrote this.
I think you speak alot of truth here in this poem. Mutilation is a cry for help, or attention. Just like Anorexia, drugs, or whatever. The person is not bad, their actions are. I am amazed at how people get tied down with wanting to be cool. People can't accept what you won't about your self. I personally have never cut myself, Anorexia yes. But it is the same thing. I wanted to fit in, I realized I was never going to fit in anywhere, because I had never liked what I saw in the mirror everyday. So I got pass the need to be cool, and realize I was cool already, and worthy of being loved. And had to decide where these people worthy of me. I learned fast and made real friends soon after that. Thank you for your bluntness in this poem about this topic. Maggie
omfg i agree with this one all the way! its the same thing where i live. people think they have such bad lives but they make it that way so they can get a reason to cut or do things. yes i used to cut too. but that was a little over a year ago. and none of that stuff is cool. but the things i got into i still sometimes do. but not as often. and i am a hypocrite sometimes myself. and thats another problem because people are big hypocrites and dont care. but anyways that was probably a bit much but i will definetly add this to my favorites because this is something people should read. great write.
