Today (May 24th) is Schizophrenia Awareness Day and to commemorate it
some of us are going to wear purple- LOOK FOR THE PURPLE SHIRTS.
Why doesn’t  schizophrenia hale
Higher on the compassion scale?
Their pain is not that obvious
Their symptoms do not lobby us.
Psychotic symptoms don’t include
Blood that’s oozing from a wound
Fever, cramps or severed limbs,
Diseases with prognoses grim…
We cannot see a mind reacting
To sights and sounds that are distracting
Voices shouting in their ears
Demanding, bullying, creating fears
Delusions distort reality
Too many suffer anonymously

April 30th Poem by Doris

Prompt: today, as befits the final poem of NaPoWriMo, I challenge you to write a poem of farewell.

What will I feel

After you have gone

When the show is over

And I am alone

With my reflections

I’ve  enjoyed our


My soul has been


Filled  to overflowing

By your presence

Even as you

Go out the door.

I hear the

lingering echoes

Of your laughter

I visualize

The warmth in your eyes

Your splendid beauty

I  have experienced

Bursts of  joy

So happy I wanted

To sing and dance

Around my kitchen

Farewell my darling

Hasta la vista!
