please listen

people with depression aren't lazy

people with anxiety aren't rude

people with mental illness aren't crazy

people with suicidal thoughts are boo'd

it's like i can't get through

with a fucker like you!

we are considered anomalyic

this is not

this is not

a "phase or a schtick"

so beat it, you hick

get out of my view.
