Giving a Voice to the Silence offers positive angles to the issue that faces those with mental illness. Living with Schizo-Affective Disorder and being able to share my experiences with others, is the best way I know how to pay it forward. Life can be difficult, my goal is to bring a bit of hope to a place where many feel there is none.

A Portrait of Mental Illness

Her eyes tell the story of a lifetime
The world inside her is in turmoil,
The darkness shows the trials and fears of life,
the ones that can't be shaken
even when touched by the light of day

Her eyes tell the story of a lifetime
The empty stare wondering where it all goes from here.
Is there hope?

Her eyes tell the story of a life time
The upturned face, a picture of knowledge and loss all at once.
The desire to know who she is,
yet never wanting to let on to the truth.

It is in the deepest part of her eyes that she stays,
wanting to be free,
wanting to feel,
yet can't find her way out from behind the wall that keeps her true self hidden.

Her eyes tell the story.........
