You are not AlOnE

If life is a story then mental challenge is a page

Illness knows no mercy nor does it prefer an age

Not even gender too

 

Trying to bury your emotions in a plate of food

Writing your task list then forgetting what to do

Always telling yourself that you don’t belong

And every waking day it’s the same old song

‘I’m gonna be good today – no you’re not! Today I’m gonna be a….oh darn I forgot!

 

You don’t wanna be called special because you link that to a disability

Keeping it a secret because you are afraid of the community

Because some idiot, who’s ignorant might call you crazy….

But I say… the world could use a little crazy

 

Special is not disabled…it’s being unique,

You have a purpose on this land but you’re too negative to see it

Drop self-hate! Unveil self-appreciation

Love yourself and begin to teach your nation

There is so much we can do if we just begin to accept our reality

Stop exiling the victim and begin to help your family

Because the truth is, we are all a little crazy

Some of us just haven’t been diagnosed

Today, for her, but tomorrow, who knows?

 

Empower! Educate! Accept! Embrace!

The world is everyone’s home

And I don’t care what your diagnosis is I just know you are not alone

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
