I burst into tears when I read this. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining or describing depression, but I’ve never come close to the clarity in The Understanders. Much thanks to Miss Hastywords for her beautiful and brilliant words.
I just love this poem, I think it is so beautiful. And sometimes all you need is that one person to get lost with… ❤
[ I decided to have a go at illuminating the text of this poem I wrote. In the end I scanned my two drafts drawn with artist fine-tip felt pen on paper and made adjustments on my computer. Then coloured the background using a phone image app. Happy with the final result, mostly hand work and a little computer finishing off. ]
