Is That A Monster Inside Your Head?

Updated on March 7, 2020

Everybody has "mental health issues"
Nobody is actually immune
Some refuse to acknowledge it or even discuss the probability
Mental health is just a label
It doesn't necessarily mean that your negatively affected like some
Mental health is also about positive issues
It covers a wide spectrum of emotional and physical problems ranging from the joyful to the desolate.
But who likes to admit or even discuss mental health issues, it's like a "taboo" subject, it's like admitting your weak or unintelligent nobody would rush to be so candid.
It's only been in the last few years that this subject has developed into media and social networks and is openly talked about by members of society from Royalty and celebraties to the homeless person on the street.
But still it's a subject that devides people.

Hello is that a monster in your head
Now excuse my presumptuousness
Hang on a moment was it something that I said
Manic eyes do the shuffle and switch to Cobalt blue
Why look at me what's it to do with you
Howling breeze stiffened my upper lip
I glance sideways maybe he thinks I'm hip
Why ask a question that could possibly lead to doubt
Shall I whisper a reply or make him jump and shout
My monster in my head is asleep so leave your assumptions at home
It's not a dog who'll wag his tail if you throw him a bone
Hey calm down its just a shadow across your eyes
I seen a glimpse of the horror that took me by surprise
Leave my demons they're trying to gain control
Loss of concentration would surely lose my soul
You stand there and criticise you're trying to make me sad
I fight with the light my darkness that likes to be so bad
So if you see my monster just relax and keep real calm
Try not to poke him in the eye and he'll do you no harm
It's a daily battle I'm swore to Legion is his name
A thousand raging demons trying to make me insane
But I've got a trick that that works for me defiantly
I make him shrink into the void by reciting pure poetry.
