This week we are focusing on poetry and how writing down our feelings creatively can have an impact on our mental health. Across the week we will be publishing a range of poems, these poems do not belong to ECBC and have been submitted by external writers.
Todays poem was submitted by Sarra.
to green-leafed outdoors
so white static muffles
build the expected ideal
chase atonement of endorphin kicks
attain fortifying aches exquisite
with all the perks, virtuous, legit
self-care time allocation
dragging nag noises
demolish the unsightly
abolish each unforgivable fold
escape fatigue’s trap of despair
in emulation of phantom self-harm
lactic acid lacerations in limbs
