Inside My Head

Being myself is making me sad
I want to be somebody else
Being myself makes me feel mad
I’m scared for my mental health

Sometimes I rant and sometimes I rave
Sometimes exceedingly happy
I wish that my mind would behave
And I could stop being unhappy

The tiniest things make me feel cross
Like I could just shout, kick and punch
I want to tell my brain I’m the boss
Instead of just feeling the crunch

When I feel down and gloomy and blue
It’s like nothing will get better
It takes all I have to make me pull through
I also a natural fretter

When I get happy it goes to extremes
My energy just won’t stop
I come up with plans and hopes and dreams
Not worrying about the drop

Now and again I just feel numb
I can’t cry, laugh or scream
I’m worried about what will become
If people start to see

Being myself is making me sad
I want to be somebody else
Being myself makes me feel mad
I’m scared for my mental health

  1. Kirsty my dictionary tells me “better” means .. More excellent than others…superior..improved or fully recovered in health…in a more excellent manner or to a greater degree…well in my book in my head you are far superior than me as I know I couldn’t do what you do daily…I pray your own health is sound and as for mental health…we need not go there.. And I am sure many of us who follow your tweets blogs or fbook posts would say you ARE more excellant xxx just enjoy whatever time out you get to be yourself xxx
