Mental Illness and Our Take on It

The gallery holds LIGHT for MI's collective works of writing, poetry, and images as a way of release from the stresses and suffering of mental illness.

Imagine a little girl in green.
All her shades of colors are seen,
She means what she says and says what she means,
That her life is new and redeemed!

Imagine a little girl in blue.
Her tears of pain cry out to you,
Her heart so cold, she knows not what to do,
Her light fades, is no longer new!

Imagine Him dying in red.
Truth rings out, He rose like He said,
When will you all rise out from your bed,
To do as He commands and said?

Imagine a child in darkest black.
To go to glass from using tacks,
Realize the dark in you will hack,
If to Christ’s grace you won’t go back!

Imagine yourself in bright violet.
You have just escaped the violence,
You’re free, able, so don’t you fret,
It’s because Christ’s mercies you have met,

Imagine a man in dimming brown.
A smile from him changed your frown,
You knew he was strange in that town,
But he claimed he'd get the crown!

Now, picture the man in streets of gold.
By Christ, he sings songs of old,
That claims the Gospel that was told
Proclaimed by his tongue, so bold!

Imagine the saints arrayed in white.
Cleansed by the blood of the Lamb,
Their faith has now been made their sight,
Lifting up their voice and hands!
Imagine a knight clad in light grey,
A sad, wry smile comes your way,
You look at him with no words to say,
Unknowing the price he pays...

Will you just stare at these troubled souls?
Forget what Christ to you told?
Or will you reach out and your hands unfold?
Comforting these shattered souls!
Some will have lost their dearest loved ones.
Others forget Yaweh's vows,

Some will never see the light of the sun,
Some want out and don't know how!
"You are the light of the world," Christ said
So, why don't we shine His light?
Take these lessons to you, which I've laid
And be strong with Christ's love and might!
