MHAM Submission - Kelsey Hill

Poem by Kelsey Hill

You've got to stand up. 
You have to shut Down the voices in your head. 
Telling you, you're not ENOUGH. 
The ones telling you you're not beautiful. That you're not worthy. 
And Right before you finally begin to drift off to sleep, the only relief you got from that entire day. 
These voices whisper "if you just carve one more line in your arm you'll have a highway big enough to drive yourself away from this terrible place”. 
Please listen to the Truth in my words. 
They are lying. 
These voices are disguised as your savior. 
You. Are. Your. Own. Salvation.
