BenJamin Zephaniah - poet - mental health - me and my mental poem to raise awareness 23.02.15

on the BBC this morning
i did witness something that needs rental
inside the feelings were spawning
because one man who i respect opened a tin of worms that's mental.
i do have faith in Benjamins aim
but i fear the "tin" and the "contents"
for a long time we have been ruled by this "shame"
because the denial of "mental health" is so immense.
i loved his idea
but it is no way a reality
through all mental health associates it will spear
its more intense and brutal then a work out by "insainty".
there is a stigma
along with a 100% ignorance
now drug taking and mental health damage is no enigma
it will hopefully draw attention to smoking this skunk substance.
i do have a agenda
with Benjaman's communication i wish i was genetic
but my mental status drives all readers to a bender
that's a sad reality when i go poetic.

i wrote this yesterday but as i am finding it hard to use this forum not sure where to post it or if it is of any use to anyone.

this guy was on the news yesterday.
