When summer holidays end
you're an adult and then
depression fades and you
feel ok; you have no reasonable
excuse to take a day.
You see your self awareness
becoming so that you feel
no is not an option; too much
reel from phoning in sick; can't
be a dick and just explain away
In that fake and feeble voice like
you once did; couldn't put a lid
on your own needs for just
one sec you'd say "to heck!"
and "oh well it's just a day".
But how summer holidays fade;
depression has gone and now
I am just an adult struggling like you
and other people who I do not
want to wrong and say that it's ok.
Or give to just halfway.
