BRUTAL SUNDAY SUNSET

'UNDER FIRE'

Why
Can I not treat myself 
With the kindness 
I show to my friends? 

Why 
Is my grief, anger, anxiety 
So relentlessly shameful
In my own mind? 

I do not like
Asking these questions,
Let alone contemplating 
The merciless answers. 

If circumstances were different
My mindset would be A-1 Healthy.
But they're not 
So it's not. 

SCREAM silently; 
Lie to those around me: 
A bad but effective way
To limp to the end of the day.

    1. Thank you, Margaret, I appreciate that — today’s been the worst in quite a while so I’m relieved that it’s turned midnight!
      I’m sorry that you’ve had a rough time, but to feel “normal” is indeed something to be fully appreciated… so here’s to a good week to come! 🙂
