WARNING This piece refers to self-harm.

I did it for fun

It was fun to see blood

It was fun to feel the pain 

It was fun to see scars that made me feel better

That made me feel like myself

That made me feel like I could face anything

Now that I have been through the pain of cutting myself

I know if I could get through that

I will get through any pain

I now know my scars tell a story,

My life story.

Oh, I was at the edge.

I was losing it all

I was losing myself

The razor cutting through my skin

Making its way to my veins

My flesh, my scarless flesh

Stopped it all

Now I am with scars,

Scars to tell a life story.
