Mental illness can be so complicated

Mental illness can be so complicated

One day I can be fine

The next my world is turned upside down

And inside out

My mood plummets

I go so low

That death seems like a viable option to me

These are the times

When I struggle to cope

When I can feel no hope

When the light goes out of my eyes

And darkness takes hold

Gripping its claws into me

Holding on tightly

It is during these times

That I need all the love

And support and positivity

Of friends, of family


Mental illness can be so complicated.
