Qualifications

By Sudhashree Somers

I’m a professor

Of being a mental patient

I have a Cert IV in being counselled

A bachelors in seeing a psychologist

A masters in completing questionnaires 

And a doctorate in dealing with psychiatrists

 

I am an expert

In condensing my life’s story

Into an easy to digest

Smoothed out and simplified

Dot point essay

 

I know when to cry

And let it all out

 

When to hold it all in

So tightly

I drop my soul in the process

 

What white lies

Are needed when

 

I know how to tell

That safety

Is actually a prison

 

Do not think your 12 years of study

Comes anywhere near

My 24 years of living
