    These scars on my wrist
    They still bleed out.
    When i look at this map
    They tell of my sick past
    They are forever a part of me
    If you cannot except what ur eyes see
    Will you please except my
    One cry and simple plea?
    I'm hurting inside and the pain never dies
    It hurts me the way you look at me
    With dark scrutinizing eyes
    Instead of staring at me and
    Believing all the lies, Mom
    Ask me the truth about how I feel inside
    There's a story for every line
    That criss-crosses these veins
    All i have to do is look at my scars
    And all the pain starts over again
    How can I do this to myself?
    Oh I thought it was the only way out!
    I hurt so much inside
    I didn't know how to let the pain out
    My emotional pain was so deep
    That I had become numb to feelings
    So the first time the razor touched my skin
    I welcomed any sort of retreat
    The pain was good
    Because it made me FEEL again
    And when I thought about
    What I was doing to myself
    It only started the viscous cycle
    All over again.
    So now that I'm fine and mentally stable
    It's too late to wonder why and
    What you could do to change it.


    *This was so hard for me to write because it brought up so many painful memories from the not so distant past. But I feel comfortable sharing some of my deepest hurts with my Destee family because I know no one will judge me.*

    Well expressing these buried feelings of pain and hurt is a good start to discovering those great feelings in life. Of all things be encouraged. Everymorning is another chance to be alive and well. All we have to do is just open the blinds of hurt and despair and let in the rays of light so that you can feel the Sunshine & know that there is always Hope! I have enjoyed your work and keep writing with that sincere soul.

    T.E.

    I think most of us have done things out of pain that we regret. We're all human, we all make mistakes. Thank goodness you have poetry as a release, and a mom who, although there is more to the story than she knows, she's there to hear the rest. Please continue to reach out, there's strength in our numbers.
