I Am Schizophrenic: Poetry From A Beautiful Brain - Kindle edition by Kerenza Ryan.
Ceramics (A Poem)
A gentle pressure with the foot
The wheel turns, turns, turns
The clay forms slow. Constant.
Lined hands pull it off-kilter
The walls are too thin
The base is too heavy
It is wrong.
Perhaps the metaphor lies
In a life unaided by others
I can't help questioning
If your hands are skilled

TW: Mentions Suicide
Went to my parents church, and the pastor talked about how people who sinned often committed suicide. As someone who has been hospitalized for suicide ideation and who works with suicidal daily, that's the kind of thing that keeps people from getting help. They are afraid someone thinks it's something they've done wrong. Maybe they just are struggling. Is that so hard to believe?
