Poem: Mindfulness

Mindfulness, a mental health poem by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

I thought I’d try mindfulness, for my mind full of stress

I knew I needed some help, but my mind was a mess

Did I think it would help me, not really I confess

I found it quite hard to do, with my pain in excess

It made me look inside me, slow my breathing process

It made me look around me, to see with new sharpness

Working to improve myself, emotional wellness

Did it make a difference, did it help me, big yes!

Poem: The Concept Of Happiness

The concept of happiness, a poem by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

Happiness means different things,
to different people
What can fill one person with joy,
doesn’t always please all
The media tells you to buy,
things they claim give you smiles
The only person that’s grinning,
counts their money in piles
Money doesn’t make you happy,
and nor does loads of stuff
All that will happen in the end,
is that payday will be tough
What will truly make you happy,
what really makes your days
Spending time with friends and family,
feeling the sunshines rays
Do the things that make you happy,
enjoy it while you can
While thinking about the future,
have a flexible plan
Don’t worry about the others,
live your life for yourself
Find what matters deep inside you,
don’t worry about wealth
Find someone that makes you happy,
just find that special one
Someone that makes you feel so safe,
someone that makes life fun
