An extraordinary day

Today is a day unlike any other.

I am going to give an Artist Talk,

this evening-on what it means

to recover, from mental illness.


How art has helped me,

lead my way through darken tunnels,

and skies of Gray.

of Poetry and all that she means to me.

Both the poems and the artwork,

help to sustain me.


They are in infinite ways

a course of my own-self-therapy.

It is hard to explain in words,

yet words will do.

The importance of self-expression,

in grasping slender shards of



To take it altogether,

the art and the poetry,

to show where I’ve sewn it altogether,

the seams stitched tightly-

to hold me together

in an Epiphany of normalcy…


how do I sum up

something which contains

my entire soul,

so completely?
