#76 – It’s my mental health with Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust

Back in October 2021 I was invited to their weekly men only support hub here in Coleraine. A small group of men who meet every Monday to chat, socialise and receive support for mental health issues. Over the course of the following few weeks I got my head down and I wrote and wrote and wrote. About 3 versions all together. And what you’re about to hear is the final piece. I sincerely hope that the poem has helped those men who I sat with in some way lighten the load of what ever their mental struggles are. I hope that it shows the power in speaking up! I can honestly, hand on heart say that I left that meeting that evening, inspired! Inspired by their strength of character, by their willingness to help others even when they themselves feel helpless. 



#72 – Darkness – An explanation

How often do we search for meaning?

What if there's more to wat you see, read or hear?

Darkness is a Spoken Word piece that touches on mental health awareness and suicide and aims to ask deep philosophical questions  about our understanding of how we perceive each. I recite the poem then break it down paragraph by paragraph providing an explanation of what I was thinking when writing.
