"laugh, and the world laughs with you. laugh hysterically, and for no apparent reason, and they will leave you alone." anonymous

Don’t tell yourself that
You’re all right; don’t
Tell yourself to sleep
At night: I hear
You’re crying in your head
Don’t tell yourself you’re better dead
You mean so much to someone else
To hurt them in an act of self
Ish defiance: I wish defiance
Could become self reliance,
Instead of inhumane;
This cutting,
Won’t help pain.
