Pretty White Pills

I Open my mouth to swallow the pill
its a little thing that keeps me in check
mental health is not a state of mind
how schizophrenia is so unkind
voices,pain,hurt and reel
i cut myself because i just want to feel
i never asked for such crimson
i never asked for such pain
it will be a long time until im healed again.

    Very very real. Poetry does sometimes help, I think it can be healing for those who write and to someone who reads it and feels that there is understanding. Perhaps this poem will do that?

    I hope for the best, and its proof that poetry isn't always about happy feelings

    So simply put, and perfect in that. I hope, if this is in introspection, that you hang in there, even if that sounds rediculous right now. I can relate to this pain and it still in many ways isn't over for me, but I am hanging in there somehow, you can too. I know it's monday.. but screw monday. :)
