Misconceptions and Mistreatment

shamed, 

despised, 

scorned, 

for something I didn't ask for. 

contemptuous sneer, 

disgusted tone, 

revolted heart, 

as if I'm 

contaminated with a contagious illness,

equal to the dirt you kick up everyday,

yet 

it wasn't something I 

coveted, 

needed, 

romanticized, 

but nothing 

will ever change 

how you perceive 

my "sick mind," 

how you glare 

at me, 

how you stay uneducated 

about my depression and anxiety, 

how you refuse

to understand.
