It's not like having a broken leg,
Everyone can see that,
They don't need to ask what's wrong -it's clear.
No one crosses the road to avoid a conversation with you if you have a broken leg.

It's not like having a stomach complaint,
People love to discuss the bowels,
Have you tried this, that, the other?
Everyone's been there, everyone has advice.

Mental health is harder to talk about,
It's harder for people to hear, to understand,
But it's easy to judge.
It's easy to feel alone with your thoughts.
