Mentally Ill?

Poem written by: Jim R. Irion
(click on title for web URL*)



I am not mentally ill.

I have a mental illness.

It does not define me,

       or who I can be.

My mental health is important.

Both to me, my friends and family.

I chose to address my mental illness

       properly and promptly.

I know in my heart,

       what has hurt from the start.

Mental health is important to me,

       as it is to help everyone I see.

All lives really do matter;

       not one over the other.

I am a suicide attempt survivor.

I know we deserve this life of ours.

Because of you I know why I am here...


Life is worth so much more

       than I ever knew all these years before.
