Stifle Your Stigma

Thanks to Beckie’s Mental Mess for drawing my attention to this post. In the fight to end stigma we must support each other.

My Loud Whispers of Hope

You rattled my cage

made become enraged,

wounded and hurt me to my core,

making me want to fight even more.

Your words of stigma sting

with every shocking fling,

of your mocking words and songs

full of cruelty, shame and wrongs.

You need to stifle your stigma,

stifle the trifle,

stifle your rifle,

that shoots out word bullets

that hurt, wound, injure and impair

mental illness healing, recovery and care.

My fight to stop mental illness stigma will not stifle,

until we all embrace the stigma and pain-free kind of rifle,

that shoots out word bullets of love, understanding, compassion, unity and peace.

Stop the stigma. Start the conversation and spread wisdom and harmony, piece by piece.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
