Parents protectiveness felt like a cage,
Unable to leave the home,
Constantly hit in the cage,
Desperately wanting to escape the home,
Felt unloved in the cage.
Learned to fear the world,
Never learned to become independent,
The mental illness made me wonder how I was going to survive the world?
How was I going to be okay if I never learned how to be independent?
It can be truly hard to survive in this world.
Went from relying on my parents to realizing they almost disowned me,
Fearing the world makes me feel like a child,
I constantly wonder what is going to happen to me,
Yet I’m an adult and not a child,
Thus, I must learn how to deal with a mental illness and figure out how to take care of me.
