Hi there.

Look, I have a birthmark on the top of my head.

Welcome to Nerve 10.

I’m Jordan, and I created this site because I couldn’t find mental health information on the Internet that I could relate to.

Nerve 10 is where you will find the most accessible, most meaningful mental health stories and poetry on the world wide web.

My goal is not to regurgitate technical terms and generic information—it’s to create a more realistic and helpful mental health narrative.

Will My True Life Find Me?

Will My True Life Find Me?

male backpacker trying to find himself

It’s a sullen paradise

It’s an active dream

A wakefulness soon forgotten

Where nothing’s as it seems

I forgot to leave my traces

I went the other way

The people watched me amble

Then went about their days

 

For no one saw me stalling

Tapping circles with my hands

My knuckles roaring peals

Crossing silence at my command

But the ocean hears me wandering

The hills, they eye my gait

Yet will my true life find me?

I better not sit and wait
