I try so hard but people just don’t understand
That what’s inside of me,
is absolute chaos.
I am underwater
Gasping for air
For after the calm,
Comes the raging waves.
I am the ghost,
Screaming for help in the shadows of darkness,
Screaming till my throat is raw,
But no one hears me,
For I am the face behind the mask.
I have found that online
It is easy to be cheerful,
It’s easy to pretend you are happy,
when all you are,
are just words on a screen.
Staring back at you.
But I am a monster,
A raging monster
Because no matter how hard I try,
No one understands,
That what’s inside of me
Is absolute chaos.

Through my poem, I would like people to be hopeful and find positivity even in the most adverse situations like lockdown. We should open our hearts and minds embracing the reality and finding good in that!
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
It’s really hard trying to understand what’s going on in a suicidal person’s mind. Their thoughts seem absurd to us that we often choose to neglect them thinking that it’s “just a phase” or “they’ll get over it” or “they’re just angry” or “they can’t be serious”, mind you this is the worst decision we’ve been making, instead let’s show them that they are significant, loved and cared for, let’s try to understand their point of views and stop criticism.. avoid using harsh words around them because for them these words are so loud that it causes chaos in their heads.
During this time when we are surrounded with so much negative news everywhere, I think it is more important than ever to see some positivity. Through my poem, I would like to be able to help people find a ray of optimism amidst the pandemic and see the little happiness that surrounds our everyday life.
“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they make the best of everything”
