As it’s the start of Mental Health Awareness Week I thought I would share this poem I wrote earlier this year. 2020 has been a challenging year hasn’t it.
At the threshold of sleep
Falling asleep and waking
I encounter the biggest challenge.
To step over that threshold
Is like a giant leap for mankind
Not a small step of ease.
But the threshold serves a purpose
To contain the scattered grains
Which are beaten loose on the threshing floor
Just like the thoughts in my mind
Which are sent flying by the hard blows
And I am grateful that they are contained.
To take a step, even ever so slight,
Upwards and lift one’s foot
Is a great action indeed.
