A book of poems that explores the fundamental questions resonating within each of us about human nature. Jenny Symons, in her powerful and genuine voice, asks us to ‘spare a thought’, pause our hectic routines for a moment and reflect on the quintessential aspects of our reality. Hers is an enthralling call for love, altruism, respect and admiration for nature, integrity and self-assertion.

Emerging from the darkness of her mental illness, Symons resurrects to new life thanks to the energy of her poetry, through which we ourselves are given the chance to re-examine our truest nature.

‘…Following Jenny Symons’ journey through hospitalisation due to schizophrenia, the collection navigates the difficult waters of the poet’s on-going battle with mental illness…’

About the Author

Jenny Symons spent a long period under hospitalisation for schizophrenia. She has grappled with the vagaries of this illness to produce works of outstanding creativity, in the fields of literature and art. Some of her artworks have been featured at prominent galleries across the country. Working alongside mental health charities, Jenny has gone on to produce a compilation of her life's poetry - Spare a Thought - which she hopes will serve as an aid to others, as well as creating a better understanding of how schizophrenia can impact a person's thoughts.
