Depression & Mental Health

Foreigner

There are days

That I feel

Like a foreigner

In my own skin

In my own head

As though

I don’t belong

And there lives

Another being

Much stronger

Than I

Controlling

The thoughts

And the voices

Compelling me

To leave

 

But what if I do?

Where would I go?

This mind

And this body

Is the only home

I know
