better again

there are expectations
that are placed on our
shoulders, that since
we are taking our
medication and seeing
our therapists and
driving ourselves
places, that we are
cured, we’re fixed, we
can do whatever is
expected of us


your belief in us makes
some of that true, the
more support we have
the better off we are


please don’t break down
when we do, if we’re
having a bad day don’t
swear it is the end of
the world, we are as
human as you are, we
have days just as you
do, just treat us with
respect like you always
have and we will get
better again
