Wordsmith – Poem M.E.N.T.A.L. H.E.A.L.T.H.

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?
