Pretty pink ribbons

Pretty pink ribbons
Worn with pride
Breast cancer patients
Will often confide

Donate your money
A race for the cure
Breast cancer affects
The rich and the poor

The mentally ill
No ribbons to wear
Their illness is silent
Does anyone care

Suicide victims
Too many have died
Crying for help
But help was denied

A breast cancer patient
I don’t want to be
I’m mentally ill
Please listen to me
