Forever I am urging you
to understand the never ending attempt
to overcome the impression of an illness
that makes others think you're insane.
Still every now and then in this big city,
I'll see a man on the street talking to himself,
and be incredibly thankful for having
the strength, ability, and support
to over come such a sickness.
For all the suffering,
there is an opportunity
to come forward and demand
the treatment you deserve.
There's someone out there to help you speak
when you can't speak for yourself,
and there's a world waiting for you
to come forward and become part of it once again,
because your ailment doesn't exactly define you.
