Someday I'll be cured,
I'll shed my skin
Be new.

Someday I'll be found,
I'll stop being lost
And live.

Someday I'll be free,
Show off my arms
Scars faded.

Someday I'll be known,
For my troubling fight
For freedom.

           Someday...

Today I'm in pain,
The wish to harm
beats hope.

But,
Someday I'll be cured,
I'll shed my skin
Be new.
Poem 1/5 that I may be entering into the Poetry Screams Competition

I love how you created something that speaks to so many. It gives people hope and not just in the sense of cutting, but even in the sense of people whose dreams never came true etc.

this was lovely :) being in a difficult situation right now and having scars i'm very self-conscious about its very comforting to see someone who knows how i feel. i often try to think optimistically, and this is a great perspective!

A paradigm shift is a hard thing at the time, but I also love the hope -
To come out something new, a little better You than the one you leave behind.

this is really good. I had to shed my skin a few times to get it right, so don't climb out of one bad thing to just jump head first into another one. I am speaking from personal experience. I did that right after I "stopped" cutting. just be good to your self, even though that can seem extremely hard at times.
