Second Side

Second Side

A Poem by JR

Bad news from my body almost every day now

that is truth

got the message today tired of the pain

weary of dysfunction

that is truth

if the second side of myself is gone

there is reason to hang it up

that is truth

depression is a cloth, I cut myself

a generous amount of the wool

and wrap myself in it

that is truth

I know I tend to overreact

that is truth

I tend to think the worst of things

that is truth

if I wrap myself tight enough I could make a cocoon

that is truth

I should be reborn

but I am stuck to the tendrils of my own self-doubt

that is truth

I struggle with patience

but I don’t think that is the problem

this time

that is truth

I’ve given everything I can every day

to everyone

loved and unloved alike

that is truth

if the second side of myself is gone

I will become the breeze

that is truth

I will become the breeze

that is truth
