Mental Illness Awareness

A short and concise poem on Mental Illness Awareness.

Poetry On A Roll

People treat mental illness like a slap on the wrist.
They think nothing is wrong,
that it must be some kind of trick
or something simple that can be explained away.
If only, it was really simple and a quick fix.
They don’t understand there’s a technical glitch,
a serious disease of the mind.
It’s not to be taken lightly.

  1. A short and sweet poem. I love the view of it being a technical glitch, especially since I am a strong believer in the view that mental illness is a chemistry issue. I send my love your way, my friend.

    1. Thanks Mickey,

      I am pursuing therapy from all ends. I am getting better in my little retreat and I think it can only get better henceforth. The glitches would surely pay visits eventually but I hope to keep them very very brief 🙂
