Mental Illness Poem


So many students
rush to school each morning 
Everything's hurried 
There's so much built up fury
because there's no time to think
or to even blink.
So much pressure 
It causes depression 
It causes anxiety 
It causes stress
the teachers say they care
But what do they do?
They give us more homework, 
that's what.
So much hate
But still they wonder
How they can cure depression
How they can lower anxiety 
How they can reduce stress
And they don't realize 
That with that simple act of kindness 
Is the solution.
