Words Hurt


The cuts on my wrists aren't a joke

So why laugh?

Saying that you're going to go kill yourself around a suicidal kid;

cuts them deeper than their own blade.

When you tell another classmate to kill themselves;

you're adding on to their hatred to be alive.

Suicide and self-harm isn't anything to ever laugh or joke about.

It's serious.

Because of my so called "classmates"

I almost ended my life.
