I hate to admit it but I’ve been dead for so long
What do I mean
I know I’m alive but I feel like it’s wrong
I wish this could be cured by just a vaccine
But it can’t
Anxiety depression bipolar disorder
When it comes to my feelings I guess I’m a hoarder
Searching for poems and songs that express how I feel
Life is always throwing me obstacles expecting me to be stronger than steel
But I’m not
I’m human
And what’s wrong with that

I’m not some cool superhero with spectacular powers
And just like anyone else I stay up at night thinking for hours
And something popped into this brain of mine
And the thought I had sent shivers down my spine
The only thing in life that’s guaranteed is death
I slowly inhaled and took a deep breath
While your here on earth live life to fullest
And do it now before you end up shot down by bullets


The author's comments:

I sturggle with mental illness and have gone through some rough stuff in my life time and it's taken me long to realize that life is a blessing and not a curse and that we should embrace that.
