Writing poetry is one of my distractions
« on: August 28, 2018, 09:20:15 pm »
Here is a poem that expresses my hope to finally heal. Perhaps it can give a little hope to someone else. Thanks for reading it.


Take Comfort

Put your injured brain aside.
   let it heal itself under the moon;
in the night breeze of summer;
   in the sweet lights of distant stars.

Nature and spirit will tend to it;
   you can rest and renew
with these longing, loving, caring words;
   with the sound of grace dwelling in your ears...

Take comfort in your own tender touch.
   I am here for you as always;
waiting patiently for your return,
   strong and certain;
no more pain,
   no more terrible confusion and aloneness,
no more emptiness overwhelming
   your sad being.

My promise comes from gentleness and kindness,
   from love,
from all things beautiful;
   Know you are truly among them.

Wonderful!

I used to write a lot of poetry. Hopefully my brain will allow me to do it again sometime.

[...],

Thanks for your reply. I find certain "healing" music brings out my desire to express myself in poetry. Peter Kater and R Carlos Nakai have truly beautiful music.

Thank you for your comment.

I used to be a song-writer before got Iíll so am finding music a bit too emotional atm.

I printed your poem out and put in my folder of things to cope with all this.:)

I hear you [...]. It took me many months to finally listen to music and even now my mind has to be in a certain place (re symptoms) before I can listen peacefully. I am so touched you printed the poem out to read when you need it. Thank you.

Not really a poem just something I read that stuck with me...

"Life is not compassionate towards victims. The trick is not to see yourself as one. It's never too late! I know I've felt like the victim in various situations in my life, but, it's never too late for me to realize that it's my responsibility to stand on victorious ground and know that whatever it is I'm experiencing or going through, those are just the clouds rolling by while I stand here on the top of this mountain! This mountain called Victory! The clouds will come and the clouds will go, but the truth is that I'm high up here on this mountaintop that reaches into the sky! I am a victor. I didn't climb up the mountain, I was born on top of it!

looking for I

Who is this I from so long ago,
The pre medicated child
The one I donít know,

I canít remember the foggy years in between,
The before years are just a faded memory,

A child long forgotten chemically destroyed,

How do I know if I will like the post medicated one,

If the pre medicated me
Is just a faded memory,

I search and try to find this lost I,
But I am an empty lost shell
Full of terror grief,

I hope one day when this medication is gone,

That I can recognize me
The lost child that has become,
Just a faded memory,
someone I donít know,

I hope you can live with what you have done,

Yes you big Pharma
You fucking scum.
