    She always told me that talking things through was a weakness unless I was talking to her.

    Suffer in silence, I heard.

    She said that God would take care of me no matter what and that all I needed to do was believe.

    Suffer in silence, I heard.

    She is and was my mother.

    Always- Suffer in silence I heard.

    Now I sit in my success- with my college degree, good job, living on my own; living and working but never really smiling.

    Suffer in silence, I have.

    I don’t talk, I live through the pain, go it alone, and deal the only way I know

    Suffer in silence, I do.

    Blood streams through short cracks, broken glass, band-aids cover and heal

    Suffer in silence, again.

    She said that if I had faith all would be okay, but it’s not

    Suffer in silence, I remain.

      even though you might be hurting, why the self-harm? I don’t understand that; I have always had emotional pain for as long as I can remember but it has never occured to me to self-harm. I read and listen to quiet music and I find a measure of relief. I also turn to God and ask Him to fill my heart with peace, it works for me. I hope you think of other ways to deal with your pain. Cheers.

      Slef-harm is a way to release emotion. Some people talk things over with family, friends, or counselors. Some people cry and scream. But some people don’t have anyone and can’t find the release in tears.
