the phoenix rises in the west

anonymous asked:

do you have any favourite poems or poem excerpts about mental illness? i find it so hard to get my hands on things that describe my experiences. thanks.

I have so, so many though I’m not sure what you’re looking for in specific. 

I’ve also included poetry books that I’ve read or am looking forward to that have a mental illness theme.

General tw for suicide, self harm, blood, abuse, eating disorders, etc.

I love the metaphors of Hamilton as a phoenix that history just…provides for me to use.

  • His ship to New Jersey burning on his voyage to America from the West Indies, allowing him to rise from the ashes of his childhood.
  • His artillery company being the only one to maintain a successful fire on the British ships that were scouting the Hudson river before the siege on New York City, the Phoenix and Rose.
  • The city burning in his wake as his company is the last to leave their fortifications behind. In the timeline of the story, Alexander’s involvement in that fire and the subsequent fault for Nathan Hale being picked up shortly after, allowing him to rise to the occasion and help Washington set up his ring of spies and informants.
