I know you mean well
When you call her mentally unwell
And say in all sincerity that she needs help .
That's very generous of you
In the face of her ranting abuse,
But hatred isn't uncontrollable -
It's how she tries to control you.
I am crazy, I am mad,
I am mentally unwell.
But I don't hate and I won't hurt you -
I only hate and hurt myself.
Many of us are crazy, but we aren't cruel -
Except, of course, to ourselves.
She knows exactly what she is doing.
She can help herself.
So call her hateful, call her hurtful,
Call her anything else.
But please, don't call her 'mentally unwell'.
