A poem by John the Builder

Reflecting on his experience of addiction, depression and recovery

One of our 2019 Other Islanders, ‘John the Builder’, has carried on exploring his new-found love of writing; recently he sent us a beautiful poem, reflecting on his experience of addiction, depression and recovery. It’s entitled ‘My Pain I Always Believed to be Self-Chosen’ and you can find it on the website (link below).

We’re delighted that he, and several other participants, have kept up their new-found creativity – they tell us it’s really added another dimension to their lives, and we know from feedback that readers are gaining lots of insight into these issues as well.
