You are here

Remember my name

disturbed, insane, whacko.
crazy, nuts, thicko. 
freak, loony, psycho.

Remember my name.

A label
   I am not.
Your ignorance
  defines me not. 

I am a...
Mother.
  Father.
    Sister.
      Brother. 
         Daughter.
           Son.

I am [insert your name here].

Remember my name
   and flush the label.

As part of Mental Health Illness Awareness Week, mindyourmind team members took on a Poetry Challenge. From October 1-5, we are publishing poems about mental wellness, coping, resilience etc from the team. We are anything but poets so be kind in your critique.
