Listening to this


Listen to them explain
as if I'm not even there

Listen to them talk
about something at the point of overcome

It's hard enough
to hear the truth

Even though
it's been a struggle for years

It's not a label
but diagnosis

Afraid to say
may be treated different due to this fact

Hard to tell others
afraid of what they'll say

Impossible to tell
of its brutal honest truth

I can hear them speak of it
from the other room

I can hear every word
and as essential as it is

To speak of it
in all honesty

In the current moment
I want it to stop
