A tear seems to fall from space
and land on her check.
It adds to a river
that falls off her chin.
The stain of blood on her sleeve,
She looks at her arm
with pulsing eyes she stares at the blood,
like her tears, running.
Afraid of her peers comments
labeling her for something she is not.
Emo, the word rang sourly.
The tears ran faster,
as though racing the blood.
Her black hair clings to her face,
and again she cuts.
One for the laughter,
Once for the looks,
another for her pain,
Her arm pulsing,
One for the names,
One more for the pushing.
She watches her pain drain from her arm.
She smiles, then thinks,
they will pull back her sleeve
and laugh at her pain, again.
Emo, the word rand sourly.
Emo, she thought.
Emo, she said out loud
and she cried.

Depression is a real thing, seeking out help or just talking and listening to other doesn't make you weak in anyway. Everyone has the right to their own lives, help yourself by getting help.

Trust me as a mental illness survivor, it gets better.

I have thought about cutting myself and even committing suicide before. I still do, everyday. I told my mom and told her not to tell anyone and she was histarically crying and made me promise her not to hurt myself. She said she would make me an appointment to see if I have depression but I still haven't gone yet. One of my friends cuts herself but I think she does it for attention because she shows people and takes out her razors in front of people. I asked her for one and she almost have it to me but I said no because of the promise I made. I still have thoughts about suicide and self harm and day by day they seem to become more appealing. I talked to my mom about it a few weeks after I asked for an appointment and she no longer seemed concerned but rather, angry at me...
All I want is for someone to understand how I feel.
I'm in middle school...
I'm sorry for sharing my life story, most people probably won't even read to the end and those who do probably won't care...
But still, those of you who read to the finish, I scincerely appreciate it.
God bless you and your family ❤️
Anyway, all I was trying I say is I've had these thoughts before and I feel like I can relate to this. You are a wonderful writer

He is trying to help. Whether or not you think he cares, you should care about you, so help is good.
And if in the end you feel living with your Dad isn't a safe place for you, when your old enough, mentally ready and have some money, get out.

The thing that drives me insane is he is never around. I live with my mom. He is now coming back and doesn't know anything of what he called about. I don't mind talking to her though so it does help sometimes.

Dads are hard creatures to figure out... They want to understand and give you the advice they think you need without knowing the situation or understanding the current generation. But they try their best

I hate when people relate emo to looks ,its just wrong.Emo is a feeling a emotion of pain and sorrow,something that is hard to fix and feel better about.Im glad you have changed.But for me i am still stuck in this world

Sorry for my other reply, I wrote on the wrong comment, but anywho.

Looks are how people, especially teenagers differ themselves from others, don't worry about that.

You are going to feel confused and angry with people not understanding you but that's because of your age and people seem to forget what it was like to be a teen. Just smile, people get pissed if they can't bug you so smile at your enemies, and smile for yourself. it will make you happier :)
