The Unwanted role – Poem From The Poetry of mental health caring

Welcome fellow carer viewers. I thought to add another of my carer poems to my website.

This is poem number 24 – The Unwanted Role.

This poem is from my latest book “The Poetry of mental health caring”, which you can find on Amazon.

I want you to reflect on the poem with the following questions.

• Why do you think the son is worried about caring?

• Do you think the carer will abandon his father? State your reasons why.

• Why is it important that someone should not feel guilty if they cannot care anymore?

• Why do you think it is important someone should continue to provide unpaid care?
