An inspiring poem on breaking free, being there for yourself and reaching out for help
I love to live, I love to live
A life of happiness and joy (2)
But, there’s disappointment everywhere
Criticism and Humiliation all the way
With all my efforts failing each day
Getting more depressed day by day.
Wish I could stand up for myself
Strong and tall and tell myself
This is the world’s way of life!
I need to take it in my stride
And seek medical advice
Breaking all the taboo
And walk with my head held high.
I need to accept
And tell the world
I need a Psychologist
As much as I need a Gynaecologist!
Help each other break free
From the stigma, attached to Mental illness
As there is no health without
