Psoriasis: a life in rhythm and rhyme
In 2014 we asked people to share their experiences of psoriasis, living with a visible skin condition or feeling different. A selection of these poems have now been brought to life on camera. Some are written by professional poets, others by novice poets. We believe all are powerful, emotive and thought provoking.
‘Psoriasoaurus’ by Pippa Farina
‘Psoriasoaurus’ and illustrations by Pippa Farina for the Psoriasis Shout Out®
Pippa said "I have had psoriasis for forty three and a half years.
I have ducked and dived, wheeled and dealed,begged and pleaded, cursed and threatened it. All to no avail. So I decided to make a little friend of it and have some fun!! Pip is a Reptilamorphic Personification of my skin. How cool is that?"
‘Untouchable’ by Keith Hutson
Keith Hutson’s ‘Untouchable’ is a dedication to a close friend. He remarked “I have great personal respect for the friend I wrote about in Untouchable. He is an extraordinary person whose psoriasis - although a major factor in his life - does not define him, although in his younger days it had huge well-being and self-esteem ramifications. But the message that I wanted to put across in the poem was that there is help out there, and that we all are so much more than the sum of our parts. I wanted to write a poem of realistic hope, and a tribute”.
