*Submission for an art competition related to a mental health awareness campaign from 2020. Acrylic on A3 canvas
Lost in the trenches of thoughts,
The dark abyss clutched onto her soul.
She looked into its eyes, let a smile, a breath, out,
And saw dawn break through the deepest blues of the night sky.Bhadra, August 2020
Mental health is an ever-important topic that teaches us to love and forgive ourselves. When life takes a dark turn, sometimes we need to be lifted up to see the light. It could be family, a kind friend or a mental health counsellor.
Don’t feel ashamed to ask for help!
