When I was 11, I started starving myself

When I was 13, I started cutting myself

When I was 15, I kissed a boy who had a girlfriend

When I was 16, I made a lot of mistakes

When I was 16, I decided I needed to change

When I was 16, I realized I am more than anything I thought before

Now I am 17, and while I can not change my past

I can look up

And keep going
