The flickering lights,
then dim and faint were they
as the water rose.
joined by the falling drops
from storm descending
down with a lifeless energy.
Upward came each splash,
and back down with a dying sound.
At random was the already spontaneous
of every moment in the life
of every last drop.
So blended now, in the ripples
with the ever uneasy waters.
Like the flickering lights,
did their time become dim and faint.
Often, mental disorders are overlooked or ignored by people who either don't know to look for them in others or they simply chose to look the other way. I chose the picture of the eye for a few reasons:

1. it ties into the "overlooked" part of the message.
2. the falling drops can also be tears.
3. the crying eye can both the victim of the disorder, or a loved one who is helpless to assist.
4. The center is floating in liquid, causing ripples. The ripples in the poem suggest the ups and downs of one's life, and how they may or may not be related to the psychological disorder.

The flickering lights are what little information we truly have on the most severe of disorders, and how potentially vital information is lost everyday by both or either the victim and the loved ones.

Wow what a clever idea. I love it how the iris and pupil are treated almost as a different floating object than the rest of the eye. Also the way the body of water makes it look like the depth of the eye is infinite is amazing. Congratulations on the creation of such an amazing and clever piece!

It's about the poem. He did not make that picture. :P

It looks like GrubbsWriting drew the picture and wrote the poem too... at least that's what the deviation implies. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't see anything that implies otherwise.

In the description it says, in caps lock, "I DO NOT OWN THE PICTURE".
