You cannot see a broken heart,
you cannot see a beaten brain,
you cannot see a mental breakdown,
but you damn well feel the pain.
Just because you cannot see it,
doesn’t mean it isn’t there,
and I believe in freedom,
a life where all is fair.
But like a heart that’s broken,
society can’t see,
that I’m the same as everyone,
you’re all the same as me.
Deep down we’ve all been lonely,
inside we’ve felt regret,
so how can you ignore them?
How could you forget?
The pain is always present,
it’s a fractured state of mind,
But we can help repair it,
we’re generous and kind.
All broken hearts and body parts,
deserve the same attention,
it’s not about the suffering,
more so the pain prevention.
People suffer from severe mental disorders and no one bats an eyelid but if you break your arm you’ve got a cast to prove it and everyone gives you sympathy. This isn’t going to change that but I hope if you’ve read this you’ll look out for the people who are suffering.
I’m going to leave this for you: A Message to the Depressed
It’s an amazing take on how we should be helping those who aren’t mentally healthy. It’s not something I’ve written but I cannot begin to describe how much watching this video changed me.
