Stigma

By Emily Jade

We’re not credible,
are we?
We’re stupid
we’re
crazy.

Once you get that
diagnosis
hospital stay
put on that
medication
well you’re not to be
taken seriously.

I could cite the research
we are more likely to be in danger

than a danger
to anyone

but that doesn’t fit into what
you think you know.
maybe we’re just
imagining things?
After all,
we’re crazy
aren’t we.
