Wondering which way to turn
Help, I don't know how to do this on my own
Do you hear me crying out for help?
Do you see the brokenness going on inside?
I may smile
I may laugh
But that is not how I really feel inside
I need help
Can you see this?
Will you take the time to see how I am feeling inside?
I take a blade and run it across my skin
It helps take the pain from inside to the outside
I know this is something you can not comprehend
Please see the pain I'm in
Feeling trapped within

Because of what a male cousin H did to me to this day I still at times get triggered when I have a period. He laughed at my pain. He was so mean. He shoved a sharp object up inside of me. I felt the blood immediately running out of me. I tried telling mom but was to afraid to tell her H hurt me. I just kept saying I'm hurt and when she asked how did I know I started crying and so she said its okay you just got your first period. I bled 3 days. It wasn't a period. I was hurt.
