A Cut To The Wrist
Author: Ryan


a cut on the wrist
a slice on the leg
either way they both bleed the same
why not cut the neck or
stab in the heart
to finish it all

am i just doing it for attention
like everyone thinks
no its for the pain
i love the pain
but its not for you

unless you can take massive pain dont do it,it is stupid
i dont honestly know why i do it
its stupid it acomplish anything at all
it kinda makes me think
" you know i have a ok life
why ruin it by doing this its stupid"

and then i put the knife down and walk away
bleeding just a little
not as much as normal
but how do u know that time wasn't ur last
you could have slipped
and cut the main vain and died
where is the point in that i see not one

Nor do i see a point to cut the wrist. Please dont do that to yourself.Nice poem i think it really put the thoughts behind cutting your wristsor legs or whatever. Nice job!

true. why subject and test yourself when you only have one life to live.Life was given to us along with the hardships and pain but we should not create our own. its enough that we pass test of our creator. but to create ouw own test?what if our strength is not enough and not survive to take a recourse? a wasted life huh....i like reading this...

Ryan ?

All I can say is WHY? You DO have I good life, this I know! Sometimes it's easier to dull the pain inside that way, but in the end it makes things more complicated...

Hey Ryan

I used to cut myself too and I finally stopped when me and my bf ( at the time ) made an agreement we would both stop I am sorry to say me and him have both broken the promise since me and him broke up but at least you know that it isn't a good thing to do

I really enjoyed reading this, but you shouldn't preach to people about not cutting themselves. I find it doesn't help me you telling me not to cut myself. Its our life to waste.
