Rise Up

What do you do when you’re sick of being sick?
Diagnosed and loaded up with meds,
It didn’t do any good.
The problem is in your brain.
Thoughts and feelings betray you time and again.
How do you fix your mind?
It could take years
To be stable and strong.
Train yourself to believe that you can be well.
To rise up from your battered shell.
