Words have power, sharing our experiences and perspectives on mental health is a great way of building understanding. So here we have some amazing wordsmiths that are willing to share their thoughts on mental health.
Up first poetry by the fabulous Tony Lawrence M.E.N.T.A.L. H.E.A.L.T.H. – Thank you Tony.
My Voices in my head won’t leave me alone
Every time I try not to listen, on they drone
Nearly at breaking point, I gather my thoughts
Trying to get my mind in the frame of which I sought
All the time they pester my mind
Last night they had me when I dined
Here I am, trying to be calm
Every time though, I feel like saying damn
At the end, they always win
Looks like in my head I have a twin
Thoughts won’t go away, they return in strength
How do I keep them at arm’s length?
