Clouds of despair

People see the grin on my chin, assuming I am happy from within. People see my money and wealth, but blatantly choose to ignore my mental health. People see my mighty success, but often forget my constant restlessness. I am in a pool of dejection and hopelessness, I need some love and tenderness. Even when I don't want to, I have to look happy for the sake of others, what I am going through ,who bothers? I feel lonely amidst the crowd, I want a space to confide, trust me I am not stable even when I say I am alright. All I need is a shoulder. All I want is little affection . I might look extraordinaire, but my heart is surrounded by clouds of despair.

This poem is about mental health which is still not taken seriously and talked about openly by many people.Most importantly it can affect anyone irrespective of how they look and behave .So let's not neglect this social taboo and encourage and offer a helping hand to those who really need it.
