It took a bit of practice but I mastered it.
In the right clothes,
the mind doesn’t matter and being a broken soul becomes a myth,
so what is better camouflage for mental health than excess doses of melanin?
I learnt to say just enough to be okay,
but eventually I realized I apologized a bit too much.
Saying things like sorry I don’t feel like I’m enough,
I’m insecure and I sometimes hurt myself,
I’m sorry I get lost in my head and the voices drown my logic
but at the same time, I never asked for depression,
so please do better than call my desperation for an escape
a means to seek attention.
