A poem written by Anonymous
I think that my mental illness began unnoticed for the causes of my activities; such as drinking and smoking.
I knew that I didn't need any of those things but it wasn't peer pressure because I made up my mind to do it.
I would have played sports or just fly an airplane, but I knew I was mentally ill.
When I had the energy to do so much more. But I chose the backlist of my problem.
I didn't admit to it. I think that it was a purpose of me to be mentally ill. I just didn't know it.
I think I can change the world without trying.
I think I should stop drinking and smoking that will be a start to help with my mental disabilities and work actively with people.
