Dealing With Depression Through Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Creative writing aids recovery
Through mental health problems
Anxiety stress depression
Voices in me head
And it’s all like football
The highs the lows the fleeting stability
The rising pant of expectation
Dreams dashed and gutters waiting
But the pen is mightier than lithium
And football a stronger respite than prozac
Poetry Prose in praise of Football
Psychotic Paranoid and passionate
About the pitch even when results
Don’t always go my way.
