Am i not good enough for you?
What can i do to make me good enough
How deep must i cut tell i'm good enough
Who must i kill to be good enough
Why i'm i never good enough
Someone please take this knife and plunge it into my flesh over and over and over again
Carve me up tell someone will find me attractive
Cut me tell my blood drowns the world
Look at all the pretty red drops that fall from the sky
Look closely and you'll see all the faces of all the people who self harm inj the droplets
See the droplets feed the earth and grow the all the plants
Look, our pain, does help
People keep telling me i'm not good enough so....... whatever

Wow, this reminds me so much on one of my characters. They would literally do anything for that person. Even die. Even kill.

Lovely piece! Wonderful work!

And I don't agree, you are good enough. At least to me.

This a beautiful poem... Also, er. Don't hurt yourself. Someone will :iconluvluvplz: u k? Also, the places where it says like "Cut me tell my blood drowns the world" should be "'Til" rather than "Tell". There's an extra "J" at "Look closely and you'll see all the faces of all the people who self harm inj the droplets" Also, on "Why I'm never good enough" should be "Why am I never good enough" :hug:

You are awesome! I won't tell you to stop cutting if it truly makes you feel better but you shouldn't bing yourself down! You ARE good enough but you can't see your own good points. You can only see other people's good points. You might feel horrible and not attractive but you are perfect just the way you are!

Wow, it's so easy to relate to this. Especially right now. I'm sad that you feel this way, it truly does suck.

The droplets of red rain really has good imagery, I liked it :)
