Jason Daden – Poetry Collection

My name is Jason Daden and I am a poet. I used to be a mechanical engineer. I am fifty one years old. I have been writing poetry most of my life. Writing helps me escape everyday life. It is my therapy.

Darren Anderson – Poetry Collection

I started writing poetry when I was about 11 years old when I heard the voices in my head. Poetry was the thing that kept me going and helped me express how I felt.

Orchard – A Poem

This poem draws on a memory of working at Redhall Nurseries, a project owned by the Scottish Association for Mental Health. It was a perfect autumn day and the work and outdoor setting led to a feeling of being fully present and alive whilst having a connection to the past.

I had a friend that committed suicide. For years, when I’d think of him, I’d cry. I cried because he was such a bright light, a sensitive and loving soul and he couldn’t see it.
