Leaves by Kevin Morris

Guest post by Kevin Morris

Leaves

Alone

In the car park.

The truth stark

Is blown

With the leaves

Who do not deceive.

Yet to grieve

Over lost hope

Helps no one cope.

Polite chatter,

As the rain

Did patter

On the window pane

Of a chain Café

Where I picked up the bill to pay.

One day,

No doubt, all this will seem far away.

Lies (A Poem)

This world can be a crazy place

These are surely trying times. As such, I put my thoughts and feelings into this poem. It’s a bit abstract but not nearly as much as some of my work and may very well cause some individuals to be a bit turned off or even angered. But, how each person reacts is up to he or she and aren’t two the the major reasons for the creation of any art the ability to make people feel and the ability to make them think?

Well, here goes:

Lies

Being put out into the sky
Lies, lies, lies
And beamed back into boxes
That infect our ears and eyes

They put them to the page
Either with keyboard or pen ink
Hoping they will steal
Your ability to think

Now they have largely succeeded
This goal they have achieved
Young and old alike
Both so willingly deceived

A slavery freely chosen
They are promised material things
Either ignorant or uncaring
The “poor” living as kings

And when the truth comes out
They decry it as hate
Somehow still content
With their own decaying fate

Literary Help for Mental Health in Youth

Most people out there have been powerfully impacted in some way or another by some work of literature or a book of some type. This is not a new idea and not all that shocking of an idea. However, in recent times, the medical community has come to view books as a great tool in treating those of us with some sort of mental health issue.  In the UK,  there are now works specifically deigned for teens (13-18) to help them with things like anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harm, and difficult life pressures, such as bullying and exams.

Learn more about these now.

Bearing Down (A Poem)

Newest poem entitled Bearing Down

The cold iron bearing down
Upon my tightening flesh
Presenting the subtle cracking echo
Of deteriorating ribs

Breath now growing heavy
Heart pounding as a hammer
A feeling unknown
To those who live in bliss

But for us here
And for us now
Each day we know the ache
That only this conveys
