schizophrenia poem by kira

This is a poem I wrote about my experience with Schizophrenia
While others are living their dreams
It may seem I’m living in my nightmares
While it seems no one cares
I’m not in this alone
Seeing demons at night
They are all that’s in my sight
The voices chatter on and on
I wish it would be gone
But I stay strong
Schizophrenia is a curse
Sometimes I want to burst
But I carry on
Today is a new dawn
Fighting the good fight
But things don’t feel right
I take medicine every day
And to my dismay
The side effects make me feel gray
I’m living in a world without color
No emotion
Flat affect
But that’s the price I pay
Just to be okay
