For Granted

Have I taken myself, my health for granted?

Or I’m I allowing others to do so?

The pain comes from the knowledge

And because I feel it is being used

Against me. You set yourself up

Then you have to pick yourself up

again. No one likes a victim

So, for once I’m going to wait

See how long you will be here

Tormenting me, making fun of me

Hanging around. It’s ok though

If I ignore you, I hope you will grow tired

And leave

When you worked hard at your mental health, in the hope of recovery and all you can hear is your own inner voice laughing. I’m so grateful to be past feeling like this for a long while.

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.
