Maybe one day I’ll be all right

you remind me
of the good things
the stuff I’ve done right
the people who care
the job that allows
me to have my own place

I remind myself
that I lived through a lot worse
than the current stress
without the help of years
of therapy, and if I could survive
finishing finals after that loss —

I can not only survive what’s happening,
but also fight the battle in my head and win
