The Flag Raising

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.
