Read Poem: wander-land, by selahpoetry

how come we crave for growth
yet run away from the waters
that nourish the body
and feed ourselves
with the poisonous
nightlock in the wild
like the forbidden fruit in Eden,
we were warned about
these deadly berries

slowly we let our
bones crack
eyes tear
hearts shatter
by those that seem
tasty to the eyes

by will,
we can resist
if we choose so,
why do we rather
beat the red light and
run towards the hazard
blame the good
for the bad?

this my friends,
is the very meaning
of self harm

– a thought to ponder
