A poem about mental illness by A.S. Minor

A.S. Minor is a poet from Daytona Beach, Florida. Haunted by the demons of his childhood, he chose the written and spoken word as an outlet for and expression of his mental illnesses–Borderline Personality Disorder and PTSD.

He says, "I have found my calling in trying to use poetry and my own personal experiences to help people not feel so alone, and to maybe venture out of their own comfort zone to achieve Post-TraumaticGrowth."

I will eventually be putting this up on my YouTube channel, but I wanted to give a little Facebook exclusive first. Please be honest and let me know what you think. It's my first time performing it publicly. And if you like it, please share it on your own Facebook and other social media. Thanks!

His poem is intense, reflective, personal and redemptive at the same time. Using strong metaphors and a disciplined pace, A.S. Minor expresses his Post-TraumaticGrowth experience with the powerful voice of truth.

Thank you A.S. for sharing and thank you for teaching us what Post-TraumaticGrowth is all about.

Mental Health Justice. No stigma. No Judgment. Everyone is welcome.
