Taught to self harm

the blood it trickled down my skin
and opened up my  heart within
lash after lash the wounds  would appear
all sanctioned by the church I fear

around my waist the metal i wore
stung the flesh it crushed and tore
twice a week for several years
I inflicted hurt that brough me tears

I learned to cut out  evil ways
and offer repentance as my praise
whenever  i felt I was doing wrong
i would create a wound deep and long

ALl this done in the name of prayer
Hurting myself without much care
This was a ritual taught to me
In the name of religion I hurt me..
