The Story My Flesh Tells

My flesh will tell you a story,

of a man filled with self loathing.

Deep scars across my legs,

for never being good enough.

My own self mutilation.

No one to blame but me.

Still, much as I love my scars,

I wish no one else could see.

For they cause pain and problems.

Even doctors rush to judge.

"This person is not sick,

he is just crazy."

I am not crazy, just in pain.

It's a deep horrible misery,

way down inside my brain,

and it never goes away.

But for drugs and the knife,

it's a struggle to get through life.

Yet I learn to be stronger,

every single day.

Medicines and therapy.

A whole team to make me well.

They've shown me what I can do,

when I put my mind to it.

Now it's been months,

since I held the knife.

Bit by bit, day by day,

I've been taking back my life.
