Acceptance by Carol Robson


Accepted for being you
but were you really?
Really didn’t get to know
the real beautiful you
their loss, not yours.

You accepted who you are
as did true friends
not just for entertainment value
or being politically correct.

This is my personal view
being different doesn’t suck
actually it bloody rocks
and I don’t give a fuck.

The Recovery Project Collaboration: ‘Creatives Making a Difference’

Details of poets, artists and audio visual here:


The Recovery Project :

This is another taste of the Transformations project I’m so pleased to be involved with through ArtiPeeps.

The Recovery Project :

3 artists (Ray Bentley, Jeremy Moseley and Hugo Smith) and 3 Poets (Carol RobsonBecca Smith and John Mansell) beavering away on the theme of the mental health issue of  ‘recovery’. The poets and artists have been paired and are each focusing on a particular aspect of recovery. Audio visual artist Shaun Blezard has also written a 15 minute soundscape to accompany the piece. All the separate elements will be completed by the ends of April and will be pulled together into a whole in May. This is all part of the well-being aspect of ArtiPeeps and will feed into a sister site we will be launching called ArtiPeeps Wellbeing which will serve to support the creative mind.
