I am by no means promoting or glamorizing the idea of suicide or self harm. this poem is based on the book and Netflix series thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher. if this in any way shape or form is upsetting to readers and my audience, simply stop reading now and move on. no hate please©®™
Hey everyone! I’ve been meaning to do a post like this for a while but have just been super busy! this poem is inspired by Hannah Baker a fictional character, based on a harsh reality many people go through. After my poem is 13 Reasons why suicide should not be your first option. I think this show brought alot of negative attention about suicide and negative reactions, however I found it showed many aspects in life a teen will go through and the realities and comsequences of bullying. super powerful show and I think everyone should see it.
wipe your tears, dry your eyes
I have something to stop your cries
I did this often now and again
you slide it across twice or maybe 10
it leaves a mark but heres a trick
just wear sleeves and make it quick
it will hurt at first but dont be scared
its just enough to be bared
theres a thrill you get at first
but after it makes you feel worse
it becomes a habit, a hard one to break
but just remember its your life to take.
someone will help, someone will be there
someone who cares
and when they come along dont let them go
because your worth alot more than you know.
Love Always, Fangirl Hero
