Chorus to "Cut" by Plumb

I do not want to be afraid
I do not want to die inside just to breathe in
I'm tired of feeling so low
Relief exists..I find it when I am Cut....

This song played on an episode of Vampire Diaries a while ago. My daughter Brittany recently played it for me.
I was nearly brought to tears as I listened...not because of the incredibly powerful lyrics or the haunting piano,....but by the memories that suddenly came flooding back of a young girl, fifteen, who sat in her bedroom with a paring knife and slit her wrists.
At age 15, she had no idea how many people loved her. She had no idea how wonderful being a Mom would be. She had no idea what falling in love felt like. She had no idea of the potential she possessed. She had no idea that she was worthwhile or that someday she would be needed.
She also had no idea that someday she would be a scrapbooker and have the ability to reach so many people through her craft.
She knows now.....
If you , or someone you love is a victim of self hurt, there is help.
You are not alone.
