The razor helps me heal

And you’ll never hear me say that 

Enough is enough

I can say with certainty that

The scars won’t heal

And that

Cutting deeper will help

I will never believe that

It will get better

I will hide from myself

And I refuse to say that

I am worth fighting for.

-Read it again backwords

WOW. This is a very good poem, I love that it goes in reverse as well! It's a very...empowering piece, I think is the word for it. Very nice, good work! :)

This is excellent - so well penned that it reads convincingly either way.
