What are You

What is a mental illness, is it suicide attempts maybe
Or someone who expresses themselves and comes across all crazy
Is it domestic violence where the victim is the cause
Is it the people who prefer space and the everlasting pause
Schizaprenia, eating disorders, obesity and the stressed
Some mental illnesses you do work and you can get dressed
Einstein declared mentally ill but showed to be a genius type of man
If you have a mental illness then everything you want to do, you can
Society points fingers and expressions for what they just don’t understand 
Better to live free, be colourful and happy instead of being bland
Everyone gets low and everyone experiences pain
But just because we get lows sometimes does not class one insane
