The Mind

When your mind doesn’t let you express how you feel you want to scream

When your mind doesn’t let you tell anyone your problems you want to cry

When you mind wants to kill you by making you suffer all you want to do is die

Because when you can’t show anything to anyone without a complete breakdown and your mind tells you not to cry because that is weak and for babies

All you want to do is sit and cry and feel bad because you are crying and so you want to cry more but the more you want to the worst you feel

When your mind tells you are not worth people’s time your self esteem goes low

When your mind tells you you won’t go anywhere in life you want to give up

When your mind tells you to look at your grades and look at what it has done to them you feel stupid because they aren’t as good as your friends

When your mind tells you all these things how are you supposed to feel

When your mind has control of the things you think what are you supposed to say

When my mind tells me all that how am I supposed to love myself

And if I can’t love myself how am I supposed to feel love from others

When I want to cry

When I want to break down

When I want to scream at myself and tell myself I’m never going to be good enough for anyone

How am I supposed to feel any love for that

How am I supposed to feel loved by all that
