It is hard to find a niche

to trundle happily along

kicking stones and clutching grass.

This one life for periods

half lived. In the wrong rooms

Wrong houses, in the wrong jobs

a lack of determination

blame everyone else for

my own deficiencies.

I think perhaps I need

to be assertive pick a goal

and run with the ball

And leave it all out in the field

I turned to writing for therapy after a long period of ill-health. I have just returned to work. I am a researcher, writer, and Mental Health Advocate.
