Poem: Amy Saul-Zerby

trust the process

are you sleeping

are you eating

maybe we should
look into
a SAD lamp

maybe we should

fish oil

maybe we should
think about

adding an

maybe we should
cut back on

the anti-depressant

how long have you
been feeling like this

how long have you
been feeling

how long have you
been        like this

how long have you
been               this
