Just Like Me

A mind is a beautiful thing to waste.

Deep in my mind,

behind the darkness that floats behind my eyelids 

There is a yearning for learning.

Corny way to put it? Absolutely

But, it's the best I've got.

And that's just like, me. 

I am the first in my family to go to school for psychology.

I want to help those just like me. 

Teens specifically.

Who suffer from depression, or anxiety or panic disorders. 

Just. Like. Me.

I want to help because I know what it's like to feel helpless.





But there is hope for kids who have mental problems just like me. 

They're not alone. 

They're never alone.

Because I am just like them

And they are

Just. Like. Me.
