I’m Grateful & Hope

posted in: Poems 2024 | 0

I’m grateful for suffering mental distress
Why? Because it helped me to care
It’s helped me to understand others
Who often find life so hard to bear
I’m grateful for medication psychiatrists counselling and more
I’m grateful that my life has improved with age
Though so oblivious to what life had in store
I’m grateful I’ve been able to provide support
Destined to deal with my youngest sons pain
But my own condition helped me to have patience
Which has proved there was peace to be gained
If asked which was harder to deal with?
To be a sufferer or provide mental health care
Being a Carer without any doubt bearing witness I’ve found harder to bear
Now decades later I’m looking back
And feeling grateful that I’ve managed to cope
We both look to the future together never losing sight of HOPE
