Visions through crystal waters

I sit wondering about the life I am going to live.

With visions of crystal waters, green and blue;

Ready to awaken my soul

To follow a purpose I feel destined for.

The invigorating but smooth waters lift me up;

Completely weightless.

 

Glimpsing through my softly closed eyes,

I find peace in this natural force that soothes me,

Enables me to feel protected.

The sun glares through the glass like liquid,

The distance we keep, keeps the warmth.

 

I sit, begin to move my eyes,

I wake to the sight of my reality.

 

Gravity.

Speak your Mental Health.

Depression feels like a loyal acquaintance. The friction of its presence sands me down gently, sometimes roughly. The gentle whittling of its character, transforms my physical self into sediment rock – unyielding yet fragile. My shoulders hunch forward and my chest draws in, as I protect my heart from the pain in my mind.

Speak your truth, Speak your mental health.
