Poem – Looking into the Mind of Mental Health

 

The following Poem is a Poem I have written called Looking into the Mind of Mental Health. I created the poem in such a way to illustrate how some people feel when they become overwhelmed with entities such as stress and work.

Here is the poem:

Looking into the Mind of Mental Health

My depression is at an all-time high,

I’m not sure how to fix it, I don’t know why,

Is it worth solving, is it worth a try?

Do I just stop or go to bed and lie?

How do I escape this cycle of self-hatred?

This self-torture mechanism I have created,

When feelings are difficult to be translated,

When all you want to feel is elated.

 

My anxiety is at quite a high peak,

My mind-sets darkening, turning bleak,

My positivity’s slowly draining, like a boat with a leak,

Is it worth saving, or is my mind too weak?

How do I escape this cycle of self-hatred?

This self-torture mechanism I have created,

When feelings are difficult to be translated,

When all you want to feel is elated.

 

I’m worried that my PTSD will come back,

Then my social and work life will slack,

One person left alone like a wolf without a pack,

When life gets tough is it worth the hack?

How do I escape this cycle of self-hatred?

This self-torture mechanism I have created,

When feelings are difficult to be translated,

When all you want to feel is elated.

 

What if the bullying happens again?

Will I cope? Or break like I did when I was ten,

This fear I’ve got, my childhood is the stem,

I’m lost for words, can’t put words to the pen.

 

How do I escape this cycle of self-hatred?

This self-torture mechanism I have created,

When feelings are difficult to be translated,

When all you want to feel is elated.

 

Hope you enjoyed it. Any feedback is appreciated, let me know what you think!

Thanks,

James Sweeney

  2. Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

  4. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
