Within The System

Where do they find the strength they need
Knowing a weakness may very well follow
How do they plant if not holding the seeds
Leaving the soil deep and hollow

Some may think mental diseases do not count
as being ill
And what they don't realize is that it's a
constant struggle
While motivation continues eating away the
will
Therefore keeping them inside their own bubble

A psychiatrist will see the suffering
While others may think their lazy
And some may think they are covering
Inturn labeling them to be crazy

Living in a society that probes for reasons
behind feelings
Will look for ways to then blame
Never considering any part of them to be appealing
Only judging them to be insane

Searching past and present life for reasons why
people suffer with depression and physcotic
symptoms
Will eventually lead to the diagnosis of a known
chemical imbalance
And prescribing medications is the only answer
by following the medical system
Giving some relief by takeing away the suffering
and replaceing it with tolerance

And for those whom are not fortunate enough to
get help
Get lost or not even found in the medical system
Ending up faceing a life that was unfairly dealt
And forever struggleing with the chaos of unanswered
questions

Besides, how do you or i really know who this could
happen to
And if it was you, would you come forward with your
emotional pain
For if you do not, this pain will forever follow you
Along with the pride that is protecting your name!
