The Flag Raising
By David Smith May 5, 2009
Mental Health Association; the flag thrust up the pole;
And the recognition; society on a roll.
The mayor on display as the flag starts to rise;
Snap shots are taken with clear blue skies.
Mental Health is an issue; artists can truly see
Very vivid imagery to reflect on you and me.
Observing the paintings and poetry in rhyme;
Expressing the abstract is therapy we find.
Voices fill with cheers as the flag unfolds in the air.
To beware of depression; and life’s pleasures to compare.
Mental health is an issue; wellness is the key.
To control our mind;
Support for you and me.
