Mental IIlness

Mental IIlness

A Poem by StephL

Life with Illnesses.

If you're bipolar, does it count as suicide ?
With nothing left to hide inside?
Another year around the sun
with no place left to run.

If you are depressed
Can your feelings get repressed?
Or are you stuck with them?
is there nothing you can do man?

Once you start to go crazy;
Is there nothing that can save me?
Is there is something worth saving
if it not a life worth living?

Remember how it feels when you're alone
When all your chances at happiness are blown.
When you start to hear voices
You've ran out of choices.

an illness that controls the mind
Always comes from inside.

Author's Note

I have depression but nothing else, I do have a class about them, the first thing we learn is to get help and fight.

your last liners are always the best -it's like you started with them and worked backwards (:

nice piece, and you're a strong person writing about your illness the way you just did.
