Do you know what it is like to be scared of your own thoughts?

In Your Head

Do you know what it is like to be scared of your own thoughts?

It's something you cannot run from

It follows you day

It follows you day and night

Days of not being able to get out of bed or eat

Days of not being able to get out of bed or eat Isolating yourself from those who care about you

All while your mind keeps thinking

All while your mind keeps thinking and thinking

You look for anything to make it go away

You want to reach for the blade, but you're thinking about pills

You won't actually do it, but you know how easy it would be

Those thoughts stay with you

Even when you're doing well you're living in fear

You know where you once were and are terrified to end up there again

The scars on your skin have healed, but the ones in your mind take much longer to fade

You consider the simplest things a victory now

Getting out of bed

Getting out of bed Not crying when you look in the mirror

Getting out of bed Not crying when you look in the mirror Eating

Things most people can do so easily have proven trying for you

You're moving further away from where you once were

Some days you slip back down

Cry until your eyes are swollen, but your mind is somehow kinder to yourself

You want the blade, but don't need it

Bad days happen, but you're not where you once were

You keep moving forward because you saw value in yourself

And something kept you going
