Borderland Voices was founded in 1998 in Leek, Staffordshire and currently works across the Staffordshire Moorlands. Our aim is to promote mental health through the arts and to raise public awareness and understanding of mental health issues by delivering accessible arts projects and offering creative space for self-expression within a mutually supportive community.

 

 

 

FREEDOM

To write what
I did not know I need to say.
To hear, to read,
to keep mad dogs at bay.

Freedom to listen unbiased
by cold chandler's
false indoctrination's wax.

Alive. Alight. Not lax.

Freedom to breathe out again
expel past pain
and smile, and live again.
