30 Poems, 30 Days 2021: #IDONTMIND Mental Health (Day 19)

I don’t mind mental health.

I’m grateful for my journey.

Speak out about mental health.

Especially if they tell you it’s always this way.

Crying for a year or silence on rocking the boat.

If you can’t speak out, especially at work,

Then you can’t speak about what matters.

Told to hold back my feelings,

Be “on” when working, directed that

Mental health for others, but not for me.

Led to fail from the beginning,

With no support to my struggles,

But those moments taught me,

To value the places that shine my value

With supporting understanding,

The true teams that make dreams work

By every effort to lessen the load

And brighten the road ahead.

Others have taught me to share my voice

That has made all the difference, and

I’ve moved to where happiness happens.

I will let others know what matters

For it matters to me. I won’t let them

Change my values that stand for

Compassion for all. If you can’t speak

The truth as an educator or writer,

Then you can’t speak for what matters.

I will always speak up for what matters

Where ever my path leads me.
