It all starts in my head
Consuming thoughts of self worth
Draining talks of not-good-enough
Tormenting scenarios of pain

I get choked up in it’s fume
It gets so frustrating
It swallows me and takes me deep into misery..
It blinds my soul from seeing the light

It says, “No one can help you now”
It whispers, “No one does care”
I try to speak it shuts me out
I try to reach out, it holds my movement

But then, I stop and breathe!
I fight back against the odds
I decide to keep going
Against all odd, I decide to heal!

From a period of abuse into a season of mental troubles, One thing I’ve learnt on this #mentalhealth journey is this, “You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you!


Philippians 4:8 – Finally, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

Isaiah 26:3 – Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee”

”You can’t control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life happen.”

POEM by ME.

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Half of all mental health conditions start by 14 years of age, but most cases are undetected and treated. We all have a role to play in supporting people with their mental health. I have been through a rough stage in my mental journey. It was a time of depression and stress, but I got saved, through my communion with God and constant help from reliable people around me… I am here to reach out….
