Hello, on the 1st June 2013 I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, this has changed my life forever, in some ways for the better but the majority is for the worse.
I am determined not to let this beat me, I have just managed to accept it now, I am learning who I am and building a new pathway, I have days where I’m stuck at the crossroads not knowing which way to turn, days where thoughts in my head cause confusion and also days that are a blur but hey ho, I’m here right!!
I started my poetry when asked to write a thoughts diary, I felt pressure and could not cope but needed my thoughts to disappear and clear my brain, I find it helps me a lot.
I hope this may provide encouragement for others to write, which will help them to clear and understand their thoughts and feelings but most importantly to know that they’re not alone on this journey.
Thank you for taking the time to read my poems.
