I hesitated about being honest
Sure - it’s what I always do,
But at times I question everything
And should I say to you.
I suppose to start from the beginning
To say what needs to be said,
Never judge a book by the cover
what goes on in someone’s head?
A smile can hide a world of pain
To those who wouldn’t understand,
When everything seems so perfect
Yet they search for a helping hand.
Today has been a good day
I managed to coax myself out of bed,
As I pushed depression out the door
And decided to live instead.
Three days and nights - I hid away
Not wanting to move or speak,
I battle with Bipolar you see
And my down days can last a week.
I fought with my inner emotions
As a made myself face the day,
When all you can see is darkness
There is nothing that anyone can say.
It takes the inner strength you have
When all else seems to fail.
To drag yourself out of the depression
So you live to tell another tale.
Honest words of wisdom today
To show you that i feel it too,
I struggle with my mental heath
And it helps to share with you…
Keep smiling and the world will smile back❤️
