This is a major issue. If one isn’t in need of this type of assistance? Then that’s an awesome thing. You maybe able to assist someone that does.
But Mental Health & dealing with stress, play a big part in living a healthy life. I know too many, that are scared & ashamed to seek help, yet they suffer in silence. Not everyone needs medication (there are many options available today), yet some do. Sometimes, But often, people just need someone to talk to, show them different ways to view things, and or to connect with others who maybe going through the similar situations.
As Black people, we rarely trust the medical or psychiatric system (at times rightfully so), leaving us to go untreated & unhelped. It’s okay to admit that things aren’t alright, they’re not okay, and that you need help. I’ve seen many in my own family, battle with various stages of mental illness. I too battled it when I was younger, for trauma & abuse affects us all differently.
The point of my mini novel? GET HELP. Don’t just sit there ignoring it or hiding in shame. ~Maxwanette A Poetess

I can’t tell you, how much this means. Today, started off, filled with pain and weariness. Everything that could go wrong? Lol, yeah, it went wrong. But a voice deep within said, “Max? How bad do you want it?” So, I pushed through the pain, limping and all, and got this done!
I’m an official business owner! Feels gotdayum good too, lol!!! I’ve accomplished a lot here in Georgia & I’m not done yet, lol! I’ve only just begun to shine.

I thank them profusely, my Sister Denise, my Nephew Dominique, my Cousin Roger, my Sister Shelly, and all the supporters & those who gave words of encouragement. Because through all that went wrong today? So much went right. Opportunities just started flying off the walls. Yeah, I’m blessed.

So, have you ever heard of Narrative Poetry? It’s basically a poem that tells a story. But there’s a little more to it than that…
Narrative poetry is a form of poetry that tells a story, often making the voices of a narrator and characters as well; the entire story is usually written in metered verse. Narrative poems do not need rhyme. The poems that make up this genre may be short or long, and the story it relates to may be complex. It is normally dramatic, with objectives, diverse and meter. Narrative poems include epics, ballads, idylls, and lays.
Some narrative poetry takes the form of a novel in verse. An example of this is The Ring and the Book by Robert Browning. In the terms of narrative poetry, a romance is a narrative poem that tells a story of chivalry. Examples include the Romance of the Rose or Tennyson’s Idylls of the King. Although those examples use medieval and Arthurian materials, romances may also tell stories from classical mythology.
Shorter narrative poems are often similar in style to the short story. Sometimes, these short narratives are collected into interrelated groups, as with Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. So sagas include both incidental poetry and the biographies of poets. An example is “The Cremation of Sam McGee” by Robert Service.
Narrative Poems by Famous Poets
Narrative Poems are a form of poetry that tell stories. Narrative poems often use rhyme, meter, repetition and a captivating and dramatic story to capture the readers interest. These classic Narrative poems include such classics as The Raven By Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Revere’s Ride By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Casey At The Bat and the chilling tales of the Alaska gold rush by Robert W. Service.

Many are sooo, stressed-out right now. Why not take full advantage of the beautiful meditation music, sounds & scenery.
Get your diffuser, put some lavender rosemary & peppermint oils (I use 1 drop of each) – there are many other mixtures that are available, so try what works for you, see them posted below, kickback, relax, close your eyes or watch the video. Inhale & exhale deeply. Let your mind wander until it rids itself of the noise & thoughts.
If you fall asleep? That’s fine. That’s a beautiful, restful, rejuvenating & healing thing.
“Namastè & One Love”❤💛💚
