"It's Just Broken" is a poem intended to help raise awareness about mental health challenges. I hope it inspires you.
It's Just Broken
What one has been, one can be
And the good and bad can happen, you'll see
The frayed mind can become whole
The pockets empty can soon overflow with gold
And the evil thoughts that in one live
Could visit your mind, so do forgive
A broken mind is just sick
It can be healed just like a broken hip
When a hip is broken it is okay
To seek medical help, that's the way
So why then is a mind that's broken an enigma?
And to seek medical help is to wear a stigma
What causes an imbalance in one's mind?
There is incomplete understanding so do be kind
No one would chose to be a shell of themself
So when you are on the other side reach out and help
And let them see, no judgement here
The thing that brings balance is a heart that cares
