Pick People Up – Written Tuesday 4th May 2021 (Aged 46)

Pick People Up

i try to pick people up
when they have fallen down
or being dropped like litter
i know what it means to have no one around
and when life just tastes bitter
i know what it means
when people have lost trust
when they will not feed you
and your confidence begins to rust

i try to pick people up
because,
i have seen my own un-wellness
start a carnival parade in others peoples lives
i have seen it laugh manically
and give out stupid high fives
i know what it feels like –
when you have suddenly tripped up
or fallen off your bike

i try to pick people up
when they have fallen down
or being dropped like litter
i have been last to be picked
because all they want is a big hitter
and i have fallen down the hill
just because there is little else to do
i know how it feels
when the last person you want to be is, you
