Cancer no problem.
Diabetes no problem.
Heart Disease no problem.
Broken bones and arms no problem.
Plenty here are deranged.
Plenty here are bipolar.
There’s plenty here that walks around so sad and feeling so hopeless.
Not knowing whether they’re coming or going.
But they won’t seek help because the stigma of mental health steady growing.
Growing from people who have no knowledge about it.
Growing from people who haven’t even experienced it.
Growing from people who just don’t believe in it.
Stop judging and take time to learn about mental illnesses.
Telling someone with cancer to ‘just get over it’ would be so inappropriate.
Why would someone want to feel like this on purpose?
Feeling helpless and worthless everyday.
Never looking forward to the next day.
Everyday is a fight with your mind.
Plenty thoughts in your head just floating around inside.
Others feeling like you’re just fine and doesn’t pay you no mind.
Feeling so empty inside.
Everyday of the week and every hour that goes by.
Mental illnesses is not all in the mind.
Mental illnesses can happen to you or anybody at any time.
It doesn’t matter the age because mental illnesses doesn’t discriminate.
All the negative about mental illnesses you all just need to quit it.
Some people just don’t get it or understand the pain and the guilt that comes with it.
Day by day your mind overthinks and you can’t help it.
You try to manage but your mind isn’t having it.
Sometimes you feel like you’re going insane.
Why would anyone sit and plan this kind of thing?
Why would anyone want to feel like this everyday in shame?
Never feeling the same feeling nothing but shame because of the negative things people are saying.
Everyday is hard everyday is a scare.
Everyday feels like you’re living a nightmare.
Surrounded by people who don’t care and people who believes that you’re okay.
Not understanding that you’re not okay and that you’re in pain just about everyday.
Aches and pains all the time making it hard to get up and move around.
Feeling nothing but despair inside.
Feeling nothing but guilt, pain, and emotions.
Feels like you’re riding on a rollercoaster.
Stop The Stigma If You’ve Never Been There.
The stigma about mental illnesses is truly sad and rude. If you ask me, it’s actually very cruel. Those who struggle with a mental illness or more is still human. Calling someone ‘crazy’ or ‘insane’ isn’t cool at all. Having a mental illness is hard as it is, and for people to down talk someone with a mental illness, having no type of experience of it, is just ignorance. Period!
This poem is about mental illnesses, feelings, and the stigma that comes with it. It’s no game, and i really wish people would understand. Mental illnesses are real, and can even be severe. You are not alone, and you have nothing to be ashamed of. You aren’t the first and definetly won’t be the last, go get help because your mental health matters! This too shall pass.
Keep The Faith And Pray, And Know That One DAY This Will Pass!!!
Everyday is full…
Full of highs and lows
Full of tears and sorrows
Full of frowns and no hope for tomorrow
I’m on this journey alone,
Hoping and praying that this pain,
this depression will release from me
I’m tired of pretending
Tired of hiding the feelings and emotions i feel within me
But through everything i still continue to smile
Smiling to hide the emotions, feelings, and guilt that
I feel inside
Pushing all the lies aside
To enjoy myself and to have a good time
It helps to make life worth while
I lost my daddy at a young age
I hated i had to say my daddy was dead
So many thoughts ran through my head
And til this day
I needed you to stay
I didn’t expect to be this way
Tell my baby girl mama said hey
I’ll never forget that day
The day she went away
But inside momma
She’s going to stay
But like i said through everything i still smile
Even if it’s for a second or 1 min
A month or maybe even a year
But a smile can make sadness disappear
I’m making progress
I have dreams of becoming a actress
Life is like a book
Because every day is a new look
A new page
A new day
To do what you have to do.
I refuse to wake up in despair
I refuse to feed myself into distress
I continuously look for a better way
Until then, i’ll stay focus and keep pushing.
Good morning everyone. Happy Wednesday to you all, and i pray that you all have a blessed day.
Times get hard, but don’t give up, never give up, just keep pushing. Mental illnesses are extremely hard, and a lot of people don’t actually believe that they’re severe, and the affects that they can have on a persons everyday life. But that’s why im here, to explain, and to let everyone know that mental illnesses (depression) are in fact so real, that a person you’re around almost everyday, could be struggling with a mental illness, but won’t say nothing because of the stigma of mental illnesses. Being ashamed, and embarrassed, but im here to tell you, your mental health matters!
