Disease

There’s a parasite It’s sweeping across the world Corrupting thousands Killing thousands more And yet- Once this murderous disease is brought to light, The world shuns it Ridicules those that have been infected Why is it, That those lives lost Are being mocked? It’s an illness An illness of the mind An illness of the thing that makes you human An illness that destroys what makes you, you So why? Why is it such a taboo to have? It’s a sickness that tears you down Bringing only Suffering Anguish A rift between family and friends And an ocean of tears And yet The ignorant many They claim that, “It is only your imagination” So, the products of vivid thought Kill people? Forgive me but, I fail to see how that works You can’t go a day without wanting it to end… ...You’re life that is Yet the ignorant many, They claim that, “It is all in your head” Yes, it is The most vital organ it’s a disease of the mind Bringing forth the absolute decay of life
