You'd think twice,
I know you would.
If you knew the truth
of what I've done.

I've hurt myself,
I've lied,
and I can't promise
I won't do it again.

I'm broken down,
and not very pretty
in the first place
so if you knew everything else

you would think twice
I know almost certainly.
For why have someone that is
broken and insecure

when you can have
someone with less problems?
why go after me,
when there's someone better?

who has no scars,
who has not hurt their family.
someone that is not damaged.
yes I'm pretty sure

you would think twice
about liking me
if you knew the whole truth.
because why have me

when there's someone
that isn't broken
I have this crush on this guy and I can't help but think that if a guy that liked me knew everything that I've done. That I was a cutter that I lied about it to my parents, that I can't promise that I won't do it again. I can't help but think they would think twice about me

People who truly care are the ones that are very understanding. The past doesn't matter, they just want to help.

Can't say I'm in your position, but I don't deem my past as who I am, I see it as the start of who I'm going to be.
Still, :hug: this shows you have :heart: and that can't be changed. Especially when you can express it so artfully.

That isn't true sweetie. Being a cutter,or broken, doesn't make you any less of a person. I think it makes you better of a person, in a way. It shows that you are genuine, and have emotions. That you have a heart, and want to be happy. That you still have hope. We've all done things that we aren't proud of. I have numerous times. I've been mean, and hurt people and I've lied. It doesn't make you any less special. I bet you are a amazing person. Don't doubt yourself. :hug:
Beautiful poem. I can relate a lot. It's really stunning. :heart:
If you ever want/need anyone to talk to, i'm always willing to listen. Feel free to note me if you want.

Thats is very true.
A lot of people believe that others wont be accepted for who they are and what they have done.
But I'm sure there are those people who see through it.
