This poem describes someone’s struggle with mental illness. It’s a bit depressing, yet I believe it truly reflects someone’s emotions when they have a mental health problem.🖤🖤🖤

    I look up
    I wanna die.
    My eyes tear up,
    I look at the sky.

    It’s cloudy, it’s dark
    No sun, no spark.
    It’s sad, it’s mourning.
    Like all of us, it’s dying.

    I feel a slight drizzle.
    And so it begins.
    The storm will start.
    The tears of the sins.

    Then more rain falls.
    The sadness calls.

    “Everyone’s going to die.
    Our lives are all lies.
    No matter how hard I try,
    The sky will still cry.”

    It cries for our sins,
    It cries for the world.
    It cries for us.
    For all boys and girls.

    The sky cries.
    The sky dies.
    I am just like the sky.
    When it cries,
    When it dies,
    So must I.

This is can be a step towards seeing past what everyone else sees. When we realise the meaningless of life everything loses meaning. Is this a mental illness? Or a step towards seeing past the pain of the world and its temporary nature?

I hope you decide not to die as I'm looking forward to what your path brings to the fates of this world. Sometimes there is something at the end of pain if you wish to see it a simple thing. endure it, if you wish to make the pain go away suicide isn't the only option but the death of our individuality can bring us peace for a while until you can cope. If you refuse to be like the rest then turn your tears into something that will nourish the future. Is just sharing your pain enough?

As the spirits asked me I will ask you. How far are you willing to go? Where do you want to be? You've already proven you can see but are you satisfied with how far? You cry for everyone but is that enough for you?

May the spirits guide you on your journey. Even if you don't believe it's fine, they believe in you.

Demiiixox, your posts are so touching. I read your reasons to not commit suicide and commented. Part of me doesn't wanna die, but the other part, which is slightly bigger, feels like my life's not worth it. I like how this poem brings out a deep feeling of...I don't know. But really nice, I love this. You really change the course of my heart. It's really hard to capture that sense of helplessness and even make it rhyme. Beautiful, simply beauty. Demiixox, kudos to you.

this poem is not supposed to be something that shows that I need help.
It is a true reflection about what mental health issues can do to the mind.
Please don’t hate here about this poem.
Please don’t say it’s too sad or depressing.
If you are going to be talk here in the comments, Please, do not hate on mental illness.
Thank you xoxo 🖤
