The Strongest

I have this friend,
he thinks he is the bee’s knees.
He is strongest that is what he thinks,
he is one of my best male friends.
I confide in him tell him things,
things I would only tell people I knew
could handle knowing.
I told him I self harm,
and it was a mistake.
He started an argument
by voicing his opinion
in front of me and my other friend
who harms herself as well.
He said it was for the weak
and when something bad happens
to normal people they don’t,
self harm, they may harm their walls
or cry, or yell into their pillow.
BUT NOT SELF HARM.
But to me self harming
shows how strong I am.
I could have killed myself,
ten times over.
Yet I am still here
holding on.
People who self harm
are some of the strongest people
I KNOW.
