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.

The Lord took me by my shoulders

He shook me until I yielded to heed

That He most certainly remembered me

With demons cringing, as they shuddered


The Lord, He spoke through the madness

He raised a sound like that of true freedom

Then drawing near, He spoke with kindness

Calming my fears and whispering love


The Lord told me what I must do

He caressed my face like a father's love

Commissioning me with urgent truth

"Let it loose and focus on the Above"


I struggled, I knew what He meant

I grew sad as if I was the rich man

His gaze read me deeply and then sent

Conviction that pierced this little human


"You don't have to" they begin to whisper lies

"We'll preserve you the easy way

You can stay here and you shan't die

And in this bondage you shall pave your way"


I stared at the Lord

His eyes gazed to my soul

And I cried out

"Lord, Lord! What am I to let loose?

I try with every way for You

And now, these demons will not release

Me into Your gracious peace!

I want back but they have my throat!

Whatever there is for me to let go

Take it away when I don't know how!"

And with that I fall to His feet in a reverent bow
