A person, an entity

Unhealthy? Yes.
Unworthy?
Why?

ANOREXIA #MentalHealth #MyFriendAlexa


Image result for Anorexia

I am caged
sentenced in
dimensions

I can't see me
What I see
is a perception

DIS-order
or an illusion
my body is
in revolution

PTSD #MentalHealth #MyFriendAlexa



Prisons
the ones
without walls

Life-sentences
come as nightmares

Reliving the pain
the loops 
in the mind's terrain

Trauma has a future
a continuous refrain
the murmurs of a restless brain

ALZHEIMER'S #MentalHealth #MyFriendAlexa



Image result for Alzheimer



Slowly the fading
of memories, faces
and words

the dimming down 
of identity

becoming nobody
person > name > number
existing in a slumber

It is a long haul
till you give it up all
or life develops
an app for life recall!

OCD #Mentalhealth #MyFriendAlexa





I try and try and try
Straight lines
only one color
one thing stuck
like a stray kite

They call it "disorder"
I call it my kind of right
I know it's annoying
But it isn't a choice
you know, alright?

D for?
D for?
they repeat and repeat

can a straight line
into a circle retreat?

Words jump off the page
Is learning a cage?

I learn differently
Am I different then consequently?

BIPOLAR #MentalHealth #MyFriendAlexa

Image result for bipolar
Image:Google Images


Everywhere there is also
a Prozac Nation
a swing between
utter despair and elation

In the mirror
someone else resides
in the mind
another me hides

It takes a lot
to be a battlefield
of identity

Do you see me sometimes?


Do you see me?

life an ongoing scene

DEPRESSION #MentalHealth #MyFriendAlexa

Image result for depression
Image: Google Images


It has sharp claws
invisible
deep, dark eyes
invisible
fangs fatal
invisible

I smile often
cry-invisible
I walk often
stumble-invisible
I look happy
sadness-invisible

It is real
it has name
it stays with me
rides on my soul
Depression
Invisible!

ANXIETY #MentalHealth #MyFriendAlexa


Image result for anxiety
Image Courtesy: IMPACT magazine


Holding onto the last straw 
as they say
with my sweaty shaking hands

trying to calm the pacing breath
the shivering in my spine

I step out 
with a rebel body and mind
mine yet not mine

I am not your "normal"
but equal
if the scale to measure
is not blind to mental health
and we are all partly functional !
