A Poem by Joshua McNay

Steps were taken in the pursuit of a better me.


It’s true, I needed therapy,

Cause if I was real, something was wrong with me.

There were days, when I didn’t wanna to wake up,

I wish I was lying but I can’t make this up.

I didn’t know what was broken inside,

What it was that made me retreat and hide.

I wanted to learn so I could better myself,

There was zero progress just talking to myself.


It was hard I admit, to take that first step,

That’s when the thoughts and fears they slowly crept,

Into my mind like unwanted guests,

But I couldn’t listen, as they didn’t want what’s best.

I had to block it all out and just think of me,

The goal after all is to be happy.

So, as I sit down and spill my guts,

Hopefully they don’t think that I’m too nuts.

Either way honestly, it’s good for me,

a piece of the puzzle that is a better me.
