Danger to Myself

I'm feeling so lost;
I don't know myself anymore.


I dread my life every day,
and it's only getting worse.


I'm crumbling under my skin,
I hate the person I've become.


I'm crying, crying, crying,
crying out for help.


Can you hear me?
Is anyone listening?


I don't want to feel like this,
but it's all I've ever known.


I can't stand who I am,
waging war against the mirror.


I'm a danger to myself,
my worst enemy staring back.


I wish I could be someone else,
then maybe I could live with myself.
