Reach Out

When your mental health
Comes under attack
And you’re feeling like
You’re going to crack
When there’s nowhere to run
For you can’t escape yourself
What should you do?
How should you get help?
Should you block it all out?
Anaesthetise the pain?
Self-medicate, self-harm
Self-destruct, go insane?
Sink into a hole?
Close the door on the world?
Suffer in silence?
Let it take hold?
I really don’t think so
Try to find a better way
Talk it out with someone
Maybe meditate or pray
Put a pen to paper
Allow it to come through
Don’t keep it bottled up inside
If it could mean the end of you
Please don’t ignore it
It won’t just go away
Reach out, find a cure
So you can live another day
