Therapy Session Shared – Written Sunday 27th June 2020 (Aged 45)

Therapy Session Shared

they talk of trauma childhood trauma
early years events
when they talk
do they talk about others
or is it just theirs
is every outburst
a therapy session shared
they shocked me
made me think
her rose petal words
replaced with some
that had a much harder stink
her prejudice
was an unwelcome garland of flowers
which weighed down
my solid hours
they talked of mental health
as if they were experts
in everybody else
i left our conversations
troubled and concerned
such situation with people
is where the harsh lessons are learned
