Shi no hakobi te

Life

 

Life can give,
Life can take,
Life can Shake,
Life can Break,
Life can fake,
Life can ache,
Life can make,
Life will awake,
Life is like a snake,
But life can also be a heartbreak.
Life is as delicate as a snowflake,

But what you see, is what is at stake.
Your life is what is at stake.

Don't cut,
Don't give me, "but...",
Every time you cut, I have a pain in my Gut,
I feel your pain,
I feel your hurt,
I see your smile,
I see your sorrow,
I hear your cries,
I hear your screams.

Your reasons are not valid.
Just stop it...

    WELCOME FRIEND ~ Thanks for your first Poem very challenging. Love the shape almost like a CUT ? I have never self-harmed but some of my Students have (they are all 17+) and members of my extended Family. It is a great "cri de coeur" and needs a lot of TLC & understanding. Your first verse reminds us of the Preciousness of the Gift of Life but also its Fragility ! V 2. Is a warning ~ not to cut ~ and the effect it has on ones friends. Also the importance of support. Thanks for caring & sharing. Please check my site ~ Thanks ~ Yours BRIAN (35). MPS works by reading and commenting on each other POETRY ~ OK

    Very strong write. I just do not understand why anybody self harms.
    When I was in my teens and twenties in the 1960s and 70s I saw and heard of nothing like it.
    Welcome to MPS.
