No poem, found this written in my notes, probably for myself. Take it for the suicide prevention month theme :)

Why

Why do you keep hating on yourself?

Why do you look at yourself in the mirror and flinch?

Why do you keep questioning your life decisions?

Why do you still cry in the shower?

Why do you look at others and wish to be them?

Why are you so hard on yourself?

Why do you pretend to be happy?

Because

Because If you don't love yourself, who will? If you can't accept yourself the way you are,

Because If you don't love yourself, who will? If you can't accept yourself the way you are, who will?

And how would it even matter if anyone didn't accept you? All you've got is you. Will that catechism fix things?

Then why spoil your present? If it was real,

Then why spoil your present? If it was real, wouldn't it have stayed?

Can you just try to be the best version of yourself?

Can you give yourself some space and let you try to work it out?

Can you just try to be the best version of yourself? Can you give yourself some space and let you try to work it out? Think about it, darling.
