I look death in the face from the moment I wake up to the minute I fall asleep, If that isn’t bad enough it follows me in my dreams.
I have these pills that I take at the same time every day, Those pills decide if today will be my last.
So when you ask me if I’m okay and I tell you “I’m fine” while wearing the plastic smile which has become the mask I hide behind.
Know that I’m drowning and that I am my greatest enemy in this battle against the taboo word “depression”. -Alexis Schill
