I Don't Want to Take a Shower!

    I Don't Want to Take a Shower!


    I'm depressed

    I don't want to take a shower

    I don't want to move

    I don't have the power


    I smell like a gorilla

    I feel weak, no longer strong

    Maybe myself I should "killa"

    I don't at all belong


    My hair is dirty, limp, and lifeless

    Just like me

    I have no motivation

    Thank goodness I can't be seen


    I don't care to go through the motions

    Of washing my hair and cleaning my bod

    I prefer to toss and turn in my stinky bed

    With the covers over my sleepy head


    Soap and shampoo torment my itchy skin

    I don't want to scrub them in

    It takes too much effort

    Is that a sin?


    I don't want to be attacked by water

    I just want to be left alone

    I hyperventilate in the shower

    The thought of it makes me groan


    I don't want to take a shower

    But I must take one tomorrow

    I have an appointment with my therapist

    To tell her of all my sorrow.

    okay, i know that feeling. you feel dirty on the inside, what's the point of putting water on your skin when you feel like hell inside, is that going to make you better who cares! i get it. take a shower anyway, i have to force myself too at times and evertime i finish i feel better, really.

    i felt too lazy to take a shower so instead i googled "i don't want to take a shower" and this is what came up, but it's too depressing. So much that i wanna take a shower now cause i don't wanna be like bipolar.
