    I write 1-2 poems a day

    It helps me when I feel dismay

    It clears the cobwebs, clarifies

    The head chatter, it simplifies

    The thought processes in my head

    Which overwhelm, fill me with dread

    When poems are penned, I feel at peace

    And in my heart, I feel relief

    Hello Dear Kathryn Claire,

    Can I wish you a very caring and warm welcome to our forums...

    I like your poem..I occasionally will write a poem when I’m deeply down..it a good way to distract ourselves and put our feelings down by writing them in a poem...

    We have a thread called Poetry Corner...um I think that’s the name of it..you can search it in the search bar topbright corner of this page...

    A lot of our community members love writing poetry and add it to the poetry thread...If you feel it’s okay..I’m sure others will enjoy your poetry...

    My kindest thoughts dear Kathryn Claire..

    How are you feeling mentally today lovely Kathryn...If you need to..Please talk here when you feel up to it..

    Grandy.

    Kathryn

    Thanks for writing your first post as poem.

    Like Grandy I write poems when I am down so they are usually a bit sad but it helps me.

    I like to journal have you tried that as well.
