Not My Friends, A Stranger
Author: The Lost Girl


I kept the secret of my cutting for so long,
I kept it hidden, and tried to stay stong,
but then, unfortunately, three people found out.
They all handled it differently, without a doubt.
The first to hear was my best guy friend.
When he found out, this is how he took it,
he screamed and he yelled and said it was stupid.
The second to find out, was a girl,
she's the greatest friend in the entire world.
When I told her, she didn't say a word.
she cried and weeped and prayed to the lord.
The third to accidently find out,
was the one I didn't know very well.
I just knew, that in school, she was the one who caused hell.
She seemed to notices the continuous scars,
and knew that fighting with your cat didn't go that far.
For the first time in public, she bared sentimental eyes,
and was the first to tell me, it would be alright.

It amazed me how it wasn't my closest friends who helped me,
it was a stranger in the shadows who told me what could be.
