Isolation

April 18, 2021

Isolation of the highest kind
There you lie, just you and your mind

The sheets beneath you reek of bleach 
Listen to your therapist, imagine a beach 

But how can you imagine paradise when your stuck inside a cage 
Your thoughts have lit a fire that explodes in rage 

Only nice people end up here 
Because kindness is rare in a world of fear

Punished are those who care rather than take 
Perhaps vulnerability was their first mistake 

If society would prioritize acceptance over hierarchy 
Struggling kids may not be the equivalent to an entire army 

But alas the hidden society of kids who put others first
Lie in their hospital beds, thinking they’re cursed 

Mental illness is not their fault 
It’s a side affect of a fucked up cultural assault
