My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to.

I am like a white egg
with a spidery crack along its side—
simple, beautiful,
but somehow
just never quite right.

This poem is for all those who struggle with any form of mental illness. I know it's a battle I fight every day.

I love this. I really relate to it too, and people who don't deal with mental illness can still relate it some way of course. Good job! Keep writing :]
