My Mad Arlekino

You’re the one who listens to people’s madness, secrets, vain,

while screaming silently in pain.

You’re the one who cracks people’s brains,

while your head is pumping underneath your mental waves.

You give advice to addicts

when all you need is another shot.

You tell some little women to smile

when your heart is all alone.

You work with parents,

while you can’t overcome your own child loss.

You provide support to lovers

when your whole world is gone.

Just like Arlekino,

you have to hide your tears behind a heavy  mask.

You, therapist, psychologist or coach –

Applause.

PS: Let’s respect all the people out there who look after our emotional well-being. Let’s celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week.
