Schizophrenia Awareness

I’m concentrating
Less and less.
I’d focus but,
I’m a mess.

Try to understand
My head is not my own.
No one’s ever there
Yet I’m never alone.

Is that you, messing with my mind?
I really can’t tell.
Why don’t you just leave me be?
I’m not feeling well

I’m trying to talk to you,
Why don’t you understand?
Sometimes I feel like I don’t
Belong in this strange land…

“No, I don’t remember!
There’s too much on my mind.”
The voices, the emotions, the movement
My sanity’s on the line.
