That kid

He's that kid
with scars on his wrists
and a hole in his heart
if you asked him why he hurt so much
he wouldn't know where to start
from abuse to lies
and cheaters to threats
life hasn't been kind to him
as the words carved into his thighs will tell you
"HELL" is where he's been
"FAT" is what he is
"LIVE" is what he tries to do
"FAIL" is what he does
So if you see this shy young man
don't call him a fag, or emo, or fat
because he's been called that all his life
instead give him a smile or a wave
who know
you may turn him away from the knife
and keep a body out of a grave
