It’s hard to admit

That sometimes

You submit,

To the thoughts

That degrade your health.


Your condition is not for attention.

Your condition is not that extensive.

You’re in the middle

Of the spectrum somewhere.


But when you finally confess,

That well,

You’re kind of a mess,

They dismiss it

As “just a phase”.


Until finally you find the person

That will listen

Instead of worsen,

You’re left alone to fight

Your own thoughts.
