When everyday is 31/10

I was going to save this poem for later, but I couldn’t wait to post it

By Kiesha’s DiaryPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

i know that halloween is right around the corner

but i am more scared of my disorders

i know a few girls who are more horrifying than ghosts, zombies and clowns

when it comes to monsters they all share the crown

they slam me with the harsh facts and truth

so let me introduce…

they are the terrifying voices who live in my head

holding me hostage with a gun. threatening to “shoot me dead”

one of them is called depression

she is filled to the top with aggression

next we have anxiety

her favourite phrase to yell at me is “shut up and sit quietly”

and finally post traumatic stress disorder

she never misses a chance to make me relive the trauma

i live in constant fear

wearing a mask everyday of the year

their voices are frightening and spooky

this is a real life horror movie
