A worldwide mental health crisis over us does loom,
A measure of anxiety can prevail even sitting by yourself in a room.
One can try to take one day at a time to sort things out,
But sometimes several days at a time, in attack ,can come about.
Depression is a medical disorder, causes disruption,makes life hell,
Good mental health is a state of well-being when you can function well.
Open up to a friend when a burden weighs on your mind or heart,
A true friend can counteract the worthless thoughts and play a big part.
Without a doubt we are living in critical times as a human race,
Broken hearted,crushed in spirit confronted by problems hard to face.
Worthless,unlovable and useless thoughts can frequently rule the mind,
Take control of your thoughts,live for the future,leave trauma behind.
We are not alone in our distress,
Sharing a problem can relieve the stress.
A heart broken and crushed you can mend,
By the love and compassion of a good friend.
A true friend shows love at all times with whom you can talk,
Doing practical things together ,such as going for a walk.
Helping with the shopping, the cleaning or some other task,
In a worldwide mental health crisis ,don't be afraid to ask !!
