Mental Health

Are you ok is what

people ask

Whilst you hide your true feelings

behind your face mask

πŸŒ‘

You don’t want to be a burden or

seen as weak

So yes you answer even though all you want to do

is weep

πŸŒ‘

We all shouldn’t have to

feel this way

But have the confidence and support to have

our truthful say

πŸŒ‘

It’s time for the stigma to be gone

for good

And for us mental health sufferers not

to be misunderstood

Tea

You are my best friend

From the moment I wake

you give me strength

to face the new daybreak

πŸŒ‘

I know that you

are not good for me

But I won’t be unfaithful

with your enemy tea

πŸŒ‘

With love so true

I can’t give you up

I think coffee

I’ll have another cup

Crazy

In the past I’ve been called many things

amongst them crazy

My illness leaves my mind hyperactive

never lazy

πŸŒ‘

The 21st Century

whilst progressive in some

Treats other less fashionable causes

with a flick of the thumb

πŸŒ‘

It does seem to be that popularity

for the latest cause

Is brought about by the desire to use a hashtag to obtain

a round of applause

πŸŒ‘

The bandwagon is jumped on

for a day or two

And then people move onto the next

cause in the queue

πŸŒ‘

To me it is all superficial

and lacks intent

Even though I’m sure it is

well meant

πŸŒ‘

Commitment to a cause is what

we need

Rather than getting bored and

moving on at speed

πŸŒ‘

That is the only way to get

real progress

Otherwise all we end up with

is regress

πŸŒ‘

Some may call me crazy

Bear

He comes from deepest

darkest Peru

Who ever knew

πŸŒ‘

A little kind bear

duffle coat would wear

πŸŒ‘

Lost in Paddington Station

London was his location

πŸŒ‘

Found by the family brown

At first they thought he was a clown

πŸŒ‘

They found love with their lodger

And stopped considering him a squatter

πŸŒ‘

The little bear had a heart so pure

That he became an unhappiness cure

πŸŒ‘

He had a skill for finding trouble

And got himself in a frightful muddle

πŸŒ‘

But his intentions were alway good

And learn from the little bear we all should

πŸŒ‘

Paddington is his name

And he is my role model I exclaim!

Waste

Life can be relentless

Rushing from one thing

to another

With no time to stop

πŸŒ‘

Suddenly you find

Your children have grown up

Your dreams have gone unfulfilled

You wonder

where has the time gone

πŸŒ‘

You look back

See mainly rushing

You wonder

Was it worth it

What did I achieve

πŸŒ‘

Then you remember things

Kindness given

Love shared

Help offered

πŸŒ‘

And then you know

your time was not wasted

πŸŒ‘

It was well spent
