About the Poem

One day I was sitting at the train station and a girl about my ago sat down next to me. I carelessly looked over to her and noticed that her arms were scarred like I had never seen arms scarred before. Slashed and cut all the way up and down, scarred so deep. I had never seen this girl before in my life and yet I felt a strange sadness for her. I wanted to grab her and tell her that she was worth more than that. But who knows if she would have believed me.

Girl At The Train Station

you sit down next to me and I look down to your arms
they're scarred - so deep
10 times over
I imagine you alone in your room
crying and screaming
slashing at your wrists
why?
your eyes look empty and like they haven't seen anything beautiful for a
long time
look in the mirror
cover your scars, and look in the mirror
you're not so bad
this world is not so bad . . .

I liked this poem because it shows an understanding that people in such a situation will always need.
