My Story, My Soul- A Poem

My Story, My Soul

I find comfort, I find release

When I burn, when I bleed.

I need the pain, I need the friend

I need to feel happy again.


But when I look at you I want to cry

You must understand, you must know why.

I am no better than you,

But you need to know the truth.


Once you start it's hard to quit

Everyday is a battle to deal with.

You hear a voice calling your name

You know that you're the one to blame.


And when your friends catch the marks on your skin

You have to see the pain in their eyes again.

To know that another day is to come tomorrow

Another day full of misery, full of sorrow.


It gets harder, it gets stronger and you will want more.

And you thought you had it rough before.

Then you'll see that bottle of pills

Down them down, the earth will stay still.


You'll feel sick, you'll feel ill

You'll want to give up all of your will.

But you'll see the pain in their eyes

Live another day, ask questions, all of the whys.


Still the next day you learn nothing at all

Again to your knees you fall.

More scars mark your skin

Again and again you'll give in.


I'm telling you this, this is what I know

For this is my story, this is my soul.

No one knows what a suicide attempt feels to the person who is experiencing it. It makes me want to jump into the page and save the subject of your poem!

In this poem I wrote about myself and my own experience. This is something that I wanted to tell a friend's sister when I discovered that she had started her own path down self destruction. I wanted to help her realize that it is something that she should stop right away because once you really get into it it's just really difficult to heal.

This was very personal and very deep. I liked the quality and intensity of the poem itself, regardless of the story behind it all.

"I'm telling you this, this is what I know

For this is my story, this is my soul."

Because you have this stanza at the bottom, i wouldn't really say that this has any issue with the "subject of your poem." As you have stated that it is in fact your experience and not generalised to all who have done this. Keep writing, your amazing, and strong. Bless you.

Thank you. And that may be true actually. That it may not have any issue with the "subject of the poem". It is my experience, sadly enough but I appreciate your kind words. Bless you!!
