Mental health is a journey, it has lots of ups and downs. Just like life, we never know which way it will go: from happiness to sadness, from worry to not a care in the world. There are books, films and discussions which try to tell you which way to turn, when realistically you are the only one who holds the answers. Sometimes, though, you need a bit of help – and that’s what I got from the strangest place, inside my head! A poet: whenever there was trouble, he appeared and led me back to happiness, helping me on my journey.
My friend the poet plotted my pathways and shaped my future, carving my destiny as we went through the darkest periods of my life with the only support coming from within and from the pen, which indeed is mightier than the sword. It can write or draw happier days and times, even if the parchment is used and damaged.
From darkness into light through inner strength and the spoken and written word…
“Si vis pacem, para bellum.”

Gary has been writing poetry since the age of 16, when keeping a diary became too monotonous. All of his poetry, which is rhymed, is a reflection of what he has experienced or overheard or been exposed to.
Throughout his journey through life he has experienced important changes to popular culture and politics. He grew up during the HIV epidemic and the Section 28 protests, then as a member of the military served through the two Gulf Wars, the Balkans conflict, the Northern Ireland peace process, Afghanistan, North Africa and the rise of the Islamic state, as well as working for the Prime Minister and the Royal family. These have all been key moments of experience for him.
