Slice open my thumb; wash, clean and bandage.
Anxiety, depression - why ignore?
Invisible pain causes more damage.
My brain deserves ease; I aim to do more.
Some wake up happy; I must work for joy.
Daily meditation. Purposeful love.
Medication. Therapy. Need it all.
Today, I praise all the steps I employ.
Done handling mental health with kid gloves.
Bravely able to finally stand tall.
