Something You Can’t See

Stuck in a world where she believes she isn’t worth,

The triumphs, the heartbreaks, the mistakes…her birth.

A world like a whirlwind stuck in her mind,

Where most of her good thoughts get left behind.

The triumphs, the heartbreaks, the mistakes…her birth.

A world like a whirlwind stuck in her mind,

Where most of her good thoughts get left behind.

The ones that remind her that she really is loved,

That her values and beliefs are held high above,

The opinions of others,

The words that they speak,

Every “no” “yes” or “maybe” that has made her feel weak.

Although her self-worth is held by an illness in her mind,

It’s up to those around her to take the time,

To listen and care about what she has to say,

Because the title ‘mental illness’ is no cop-out or throw away.

It’s like a broken bone under her own body weight,

No matter what she tries, it will always break.

No thoughts or sense or words can heal,

This broken bone in her mind that she can constantly feel.

Until it’s protected by a cast of proper help and support,

That can help silence the voices that keep screaming “abort!”

But she can’t weave this cast alone, so we shouldn’t expect her to,

Saying “well why can’t she just stop?” is like trying to fix it with glue.

If you can’t cast your own broken bones then how could she?

It doesn’t mean it’s not broken if it’s something you can’t see.
