Monday Morning 

It is Monday morning,

And I need the implied motivation

Of a new week.  

I’m stuck in a 7 day cycle

Left on repeat. 

It is Monday morning,

And my scalp is screaming

As I run a brush through my hair

For the first time 

since Wednesday evening. 

Being gentle isn’t working,

I need this to remind me

To take better care of my body. 

I keep telling myself it will get easy,

Next week is the week

For habit breaking. 

But this takes me back to

Before I knew 

depression had a name.

I only recognized it 

by the shape it would take

When mama couldn’t leave her bed. 

I promised that would never be me. 

So I will keep battling. 

Till next Monday morning.
