Here at Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind, we are lucky enough to have some truly fantastic budding poets amongst our staff and service users. Akin Olusanya is just one such poet, who has agreed to share his amazing poetry with us.
Inspired by our Talking Therapies service, Akin has reflected on his experiences through the medium of poetry. We hope his poetry will inspire you to make use of our Talking Therapies service if you could do with some extra support:
When the voices I hear and the voices that press
Weigh down upon my mind in fear
And my feet goes numb, feelings of being stuck
A companion to these four walls, my world
Struck by the silent persistent whisper – Your radiant sun is out there
Taking a deep breath, I take a first step, I search
Oh look; what do I see here?
Privacy and confidence,
My troubles – safely I share
Seek out this path
Talking Therapies from Mind
I’m functioning once again
