    "Untitled" by Rupi Kaur Information-grey

    when the world comes crashing at your feet
    it’s okay to let others
    help pick up the pieces
    if we’re present to take part in your happiness
    when your circumstances are great
    we are more than capable

    "the owl and the chimpanzee" by Jo Camacho Information-grey

    The owl and the chimpanzee went to sea
    In a beautiful boat called The Mind
    The owl was sensible, clever and smart
    The chimp was a little behind
    The owl made decisions, based on fact
    And knew where to steer its ship

    "The Fury of Rain Storms," by Anne Sexton Information-grey

    after being
    picked and plucked
    and prodded out of
    your home.

    "Men Speak Up" by Akin Olunsanya Information-grey

    My soul is burdened, seems like I’m in the dark
    Trapped,
    And my mind, overwhelmed
    A man with great pride
    Had all, lost all, (5)
    Everything in me yelling for help
    Remember growing up
    as a young male,
    the world telling me
    Always be strong (10)

    A man going on to thirty four
    With no navigation to weather the storm
    Lost
    Strange, now I’m losing my sleep (15)...
