Reasons For Hope

The mental health hospital emailed me,
With the message:

“It has been reported that you are experiencing some mental health difficulties at the moment therefore the team would like to establish if we can arrange suitable support for your needs?”,

As a result of my crisis Wednesday before last,
So I’ve replied back to them,
Describing my noise and housemate problems,

I’ve also emailed the council again,
To emphasise the profound effect,
Of having a clean house on my mental health,

For though I knew that perfectly well,
It’s only now, being able to experience it anew,
That I can fully appreciate just how profound it is;

That’s three points of contact,
To make my case with,

So I’m going to tell myself,
These are reasons for hope.

I can dream,
And I will rise.

    1. My body clock resetting worked well, by the way :D. I stayed awake until 9, then slept until 18:30 without waking up at all! Slept through the heat of the day, amazing! It’s so much more peaceful at night πŸ™‚

    1. Really? Thank you!

      I’m really feeling pretty empty from hours of OCD, and after I wrote this I thought what am I doing, most of my poems are shit. And that this shouldn’t be a poem because it’s just writing broken up with commas.

      So your comment helps! πŸ’™


      1. Whatever flows, let it go my friend❀
        It feels to me you are too harsh on yourself. You’re very talented and your voice is your expression. It’s inspiring and needed.
        Lean into itπŸ˜‰

      2. Thanks! Well, that self-doubting then was more related with the aftermath of so much OCD stress. I really like some of my poems, and I’m usually more relaxed about the less-profound ones or ones I’m less satisfied with :).

        Your comment has definitely helped though! πŸ’™


    1. Thanks! Why do people always like my shit poems? Lol. Perhaps that last bit did indeed save it! πŸ˜…

    2. I really appreciate the encouragement! Especially as I was actually feeling like this wasn’t very good, although that was largely down to OCD exhaustion!
