We cut flowers because we think they are beautiful

We cut flowers because we think they will brighten someones day

We cut ourselves because we think we are ugly

We cut ourselves because we think we will ruin someones day

It is like being trapped inside a cage

rightfully so because we are treated like animals

It is like being hunted down and trapped inside a cage

people tell us to be ourselves then they criticize us and tell us we’re messed up

We smile but inside we are slowly dying

We smile but we are the most hurt

We smile but the people with the biggest smiles are often faking it

We smile but we wish we didn’t have to
