Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my blog, I appreciate it.
My latest poem is a poem called ‘Be’. It’s about learning just how to be yourself when you struggle with your mental health.
I hope you like and can relate.
I wish I could just be
I wish I knew how to be me
And not the me that people see
The real me….not version 1, 2 or 23
To be able to calm my mind and just settle
Not to have to pretend i’m in fine fettle
To just be comfortable in my own skin
When mixing with friends or next of kin
To not have to pretend
That i’m not thinking of my end
To be able to relax and not worry
And stop my mind from saying ‘hurry….hurry’
But I just don’t know who I am
I’ve been lost and sunk in quicksand
And each time I escaped a part of me went missing
Now i’m just a shell, a body, a thing
I don’t want to be version 1, 2 or 23
I don’t want to be the me that people see
I want to know how to just be me
I will know how to just be
Belief is everything
