Pen scratching gainst the page

words whipping in her mind

letters bleeding into the page

as a way to be safe instead

skin full of old scars

tears dried up in her eyes

instead of inflicting pain

she writes her pain away

making her feel so much better instead

hope that others will see

she is as strong as one can be

poetry as a saving grace

writing as a way to stay

she learns that she will survive

in the world full of uncountless pain
