I’m honoured be part of this beautiful collaboration organised by Zawadi Parizek to help raise awareness about mental health.
Mental health problems can affect the way you think, feel and behave. Common mental health problems are depression and anxiety and more rare problems are schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. A mental health problem can feel just as bad, or worse, as any other physical illness – only you cannot see it.
I was asked to choose a word describing my piece, and my word Is captive.
In my piece butterfly represents beautiful human being but hold captive in his own dark mind…
" I am good for a while
I’ll talk more, laugh more
Sleep and eat normally
But then something happens
Like a switch turns off somewhere
And all I am left with is the darkness of my mind
But each time it seems like I sink
Deeper and deeper
And I am scared…
Terrified that one day I won’t make it back up…"
