Not Enough Beds…

A poem I wrote during my first stay in hospital. 

Not enough beds and I need a bed because I am here. I don’t need it right now though, so why can’t someone else use it?

I need to listen to myself. I need to listen to my body. I need to listen to others.

I need to remain neutral.

So that I can listen.

So that I can learn.

So that I can become a BETTER PERSON.

For myself and for others.

I need to be balanced.

I need to listen to the people who know things I don’t know.

I need to take time to learn the things I don’t know.

The world is a reflection of yourself. A black mirror.

Don’t be afraid of change.

Don’t be afraid of change.

Fear is the mind killer.

If you reach out to me, I will reach back when I have the time.

If I can’t someone will.

THERE IS A SAFETY NET.

It’s hidden behind a labyrinth of voices, so search for the voices that resonate.

Talk to each other. Talk about other people, speak with kindness. If you do that you’ll be able to teach who to trust.

Actions > Words.

Words are wind.

Trust in yourself.

Trust in your heart.

Trust in your mind.

Trust in your whole self.

Then learn to see who can be trusted.

Fuck you 2016.

Here’s to a better year.

Love is universal.
