Mental health illness affects a lot of people these days. Depression is on the rise amongst teens and adults. Depression is not a choice. It can happen to anybody.
On account of the increasing number of cases and growing concern, the month of October has been earmarked to increase awareness on mental health. October 10th is observed as Mental Health Awareness Day by World Health Organization.
I have penned down 3 poems, on mental health, which I will share everyday, starting from today.
Don’t tell me, I have it all
I feel like I’m hitting a wall
Where do I go from here?
My mind’s ambushed by an unknown fear
Don’t tell me things, I already know
Save me, from drowning in woe
The writing’s all over the wall
My mind’s being mauled
I’m going crazy, I feel so low
There’s nowhere I have to go
Something’s gripping me from within
Like Hades’ found his way in
It comes and goes
Comes and goes
This feeling; that isn’t my call
That’s making me falter, that’s making me fall
