Another older poem, around 14. Written based off the struggles I watched my friend go through. (If you have past experience in self harm/depression and are easily triggered you may not want to read this)

Such a bright smile.
Such beautiful eyes.
Put them together.
Make a disgiease.
Your so confident, so strong.
But your actually broken, your all alone.
Your have such eager and pride.
But your actually scared and just want to hide.
Your so flawless, so pretty.
Yet you look in a mirror and see a sight of pity.
Your voice so strong, and love when you speak.
But they're all wrong, your hurt and your weak.
They think your so happy and get all you want.
But your actually miserable and hear all the taunts.
They think those bruises are from falling, those scars from being clumsy.
But those are from your bullies and even from your mumsy.
They think those bracelets are for fun.
But you wouldn't have them if they gave you a gun.
They think you so awesome, smile getting bigger.
you pull back the cock, put your finger on the trigger.
You eyes dance with happiness and love.
But your on the cliff, wanting a shove.
They think your so cool, a beacon of hope.
Yet your getting the stool, and looping the rope.
Your in the dark, just wanting a saviour.
Someone to give you a hug and take away the razor.
Someone to help you do as you choose.
To make you get down and undo the noose.
Some to hide all the guns, to say lifes still to be won.
Someone who will give your scars a kiss.
For them to look you in the eyes and tell you.
You'll be missed.
