You can still be scattered and masterful. It’s in your DNA 🧬 ! Keep at it!
There is one thing you should know about writing. It will will inevitably lead you to terrible places, as you cannot write about something if you have not lived it. Through the most important thing to bear in mind is this: you are there as a tourist and must always remain one.
There was a very specific reason why you were blessed with the ability to translate your sentiments into words- it is to bring a voice to suffering and torment. But, do not be too indulgent with your expericance of these things- despite how addictive suffering can be- how easy it is to get lost down that twisted path of self destruction. You must emerge from adversity , scathed but victorious- to tell your story and in turn , light the way for others.

Words fall straight to my pen
Creamy and Cool.
I sense my fingertips begin to dance.
Anticipating the drop of ink,
Heavy words dominate my flow
Real words are the only writing I know
The words that slide off the pen aren’t easy,
I call it paper bleeding,
It’s me screaming to be heard
So, I’ll keep dancing
Leaving drops of me along of the way
No matter what people say.
They still fall
When I write, it always comes from personal experience. I only know how to write honestly. It’s soul cleansing.

Unique Poetry, an online Journal, has been up and running since January 1st, 2020. A personal project that is near and dear to my heart. Submit your best poetry! You can even submit it personally to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pick up the pen and write. It may not be worth much in the beginning, but a poet will always find an ending.
Mental Illness is not a battle that can be won; it’s a journey that some of us didn’t choose to walk on. Be kind, be aware, and always take care of yourself and the ones you love.
