Labeled

Because of her faith and belief.
They say that she is crazy and delusional.

In a blink, she was shipped off to the psych ward
Placed on suicide watch and
“diagnosed” with schizophrenia, bipolar,
and something else she cannot remember.

24 hours ago, she was perfectly fine.
Laughing, singing and having a good time.
In her right mind.
No history of mental health.

  1. I really like the ideas behind this poem and how it was delivered. There’s a lot of writing out there on mental health but this was refreshing in how it juxtaposed two viewpoints of a mind. Nicely done 🙂
