Illness Unseen

a flame in the breeze
her eyes danced... dazzling with fire
...was misunderstood
even branded a liar

the signs were all there
but took too long to be seen
a disorder so...
profound... an illness unseen

her odd behaviour
now makes sense... can be explained
shame no answers sought
instead... everyone just blamed

a troublesome mind
is so hard to comprehend
mental illness hides...
in a world of judging friends

we've lost another
angel... too tender in years
because of stigma,
ignorance... misguided fear

so please look deeper
when odd tendencies appear
help... do not label
'till clarification's clear

as you just may save
someone... pain too hard to bear
as life's hard enough
...we all need someone to care!
