Here is my confession–
I am tired of depression,
and psychiatric sessions
about foolish old obsessions
with lovers that caused oppression
in rapid-fire succession.
I am sick of indigestion,
and it shows in my expression.
If you are in possession
of a way to achieve progression
from this state of repression,
do share your thoughts, even if you’re guessin’.
