Happy World Mental Health Day! I hope my poem resonates with the day and our effort to take care of our mental health in equal measures to our physical health.
Were staying on top that easy,
none would ever below be!
It surely depends on you
what that top could ever mean!
I once thought it meant money
qnd other time it meant jolly,
But then l lost both
and my psyche really stayed below!
I yet learnt to aim on top
But that the top was now a bed
and the most it meant was down to sleep
visited by bath, laundry and co!
Much later did some jolly resume
’cause l guess l ‘d really tried in staying on top!
