A Poem About Mental Illness
Why are we afraid of the mentally insane?
Is it in case we end up the same
Or they will harm us in any way
Because we think we are to blame

Going to their worst level because the have no price to pay
No body understands them in any way
Isolated and vulnerable- labelled insane
They are told no-one can help them and are injected day by day
How can they go back to being half them selves?
Before the illness and try and think straight
If they are injected with poison so they are never the same
I do not agree with the actions they take
To hurt another human being is wrong in every way
If we only had a little compassion and more empathy
And tried everything to help them on their way
To clear the clouds from their mind and brush the cobwebs away
So on those dark days the depression won’t meander in every way
Which enveloped them and made them a mentally ill patient ward A
