First CutMature

First time's a wince
Second's a pain
Third, swear you won't do it again.

Fifth bite your tongue
Keep in the scream
Sixth wishing it was just a dream

Seventh a comfort
Eighth lose count
Next time you want to sort this out

Again hide your legs
Scrub at your nails
Cover it up, that never fails

Habit you started
Began from nothing
Look at all the pain, that first cut can bring.

The End
