Mental health carers as partners in recovery

Wild Lands

Your pain screams across your body,
black noise in your head
I call in the light,
while you battle in the shadows

I thought I knew you but realise
………. I know nothing
This body that I nursed… bathed…grew …
Is a wild land…

I listen,
That I may learn your language,
Your rhythm,
So that one day I may return
