Mending Minds


Too heavy,
life's load
final straws
tip scales
and souls
care no more.


Dreams lie,
die -
crushed
broken
fragmented.
Scattered, like
the pieces of
confined
confused minds.


Blank screens,
system failures
vacant
stares, into oblivion.
White wall surround
soothes
heals.
Carers effort
to repair -
despair.


Step
after
heavy step.
Two
steps forward.
Three back.


Tinge white wall surround
pale
green room calm
then tread the boards
of life's grey stage.


Colour,
comes later.
