Are there any types of of images or styles of art that you think should never be displayed in mental health or addiction facilities?

When I was 16 I wrote a poem that I had thought had summed up my life. I feel that this type of thing would not be appropriate for a hospital. It was called;
                                    
                                                          The Link

Why should he live, yet
Why should he die?
He was going to live on
Because there might be a tie.

He was brought to a new home,
To parents he only respected.
He was brought to new friends,
By whom he felt rejected.

A different little child,
That people liked to use.
No matter what he did,
He was born, just to lose.

To pains that he suffered,
There should be a reply.
To make life livable,
There must be a tie.

Your life is only empty,
When no one is there.
You only die,
When no one will care.

He saw all these things,
Like no one else can.
He looked back on his life
And died; a broken man.
