A Mind’s Battleground

Battling Mental Illness

Dreadful chaos swirled in the air.

Intrusive thoughts that lead to nowhere.

Silent battles fought within their minds,

Trying to find solace they seldom find.

Restless mind yearning for attention.

Aching for relief while seeking a sense of security.

Caught in the web of life's relentless pace,

Tormented by feelings of paranoia.

In the realm of noise, their identity is lost.

Overwhelmed by distractions while they

Navigate through a maze of confusion.

Special Note: May is Mental Awareness Month so this Acrostic Poem seeks to shine a light on our efforts to Battle Mental Illness.
