Depression has been reported to rage attacks on happiness
Known for being the leading cause of death in people 15 to 34
Suicide is spotted about once every fourty seconds,
At least 1 person has committed sucicide since this poem has began
But that’s hard to believe isn’t it?
Like, we have to question the legitimacy of a theory that sadness becomes deadly
The other day, someone told me that they believed in mermaids
They told me that water can turn some people’s legs into tails
But laughed when I said that bullying can turn some people’s mouths into shotguns
I once met a man that told me that he seasons all of his meals with garlic
He said that he did it to scare away the vampires
Then laughed at me for decorating both of my wrists with butterflies
Even after I told him that I did it to scare away the razor blades
It’s interesting how people will convince themselves of false information.
Even those who don’t believe in a conspiracy will spend time searching for answers
But no one seems to ask
What makes people die from being lonely?
Won’t ask themselves
If the people they know could be suffering from a mental illness
When talking about my mental health as a black person
It is treated like a conspiracy theory that few believe
Conspiracy:“all of us get depressed sometimes”
Conspiracy: oregano and coconut oil be more effective. Than any antidepressants.
*Mental health thrives off people thinking it’s supernatural
Allowing it to live in its natural habitat of ignorance
Sighting: mental health facilities close and people are left with their conspiracy left untreated
Undiagnosed disorders look like a growing unmedicated tumor
Sighting: children dying in their single digits.
Some not even old enough to know how to properly draft a suicide note.
My body left harmed is an unsolved mystery
Suicidal patterns and depressive symptoms are often neglected.
This in turn causes more suicides
And there’s no conspiracy in that
