Stigma (Revised)

Standard

mental-health-1420801_640

One day,

it just required too much

energy to pretend

or care.

So I whispered the diagnosis

then said it louder.

 

But there will be consequences: exile,

their discomfort at my frankness, even

your distance–

 

“No one would want to be seen 

with you, your issues–“

 

Well, then so be it.
