Post of The Month

"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

  • The Gallery (Poem, Trig Warning)

    The damage was done long ago.
    Yet the scars still glow.
    A gallery thatís closed,
    For my own personal show.

    Itís a gallery I made.
    One I want to add to.
    But itís taking everything I have,
    Not to.

    The need screams,
    Can you hear it to?
    But to submit a new piece...
    Will cost you.

    Oh please.
    I canít afford this,
    Canít you just take it away from me,
    It needs to go.

    Tears come to my eyes,
    I don't know what to do.

    Love this one! It's very relatable unfortunately, I guess the extended metaphor makes it an easier subject to talk about.

    Do you just come up with these on the spot, or do you have them written down somewhere and you share them? Either way, 'Poetry by Distraction' needs to be a thing : )

      Aww thank you , I come up with them on the spot when I get into a bad situation, although I was thinking of posting some olds ones but not sure yet

        I'd love to read any more you have!
        But poetry is an elequently personal outlet, and I get it if you don't want to post a window into your mind on the internet for everyone to read haha
        : )

          It's actually nice that someone wants to read them so thank you. Aye, haha, I don't mind, I like putting them out there, I'll probably be posting more cos it's something to focus on. I've got one am putting up the now about my mother and a situation. Hopefully they won't all be dark and dingy lol.

            I like dark and dingy poems, Wilfred Owen's one of my favourite poets haha

              Isn't he a war poet? I think I've looked him up, I chose the Somme for my theme in college and I was looking a world war 1 poets, he came up, his great if his the same person am thinking of


              • #8
                Yeah, he died a few days before the war ended sadly. He wrote poems like 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' and 'Dulce et Decorum est'. My face lit with glee when 'Arms and the Boy' turned out to be the unseen poetry in my english exam last year, I A*'d that so I probably have Wilfred Owen to thank for that haha
