Not On That Couch

Black folks don’t like therapy

Nobody wants to admit

That we have issues

“Talking out loud to a stranger

Is for white folks

I’m okay with these meds

I got my liquor too”

When we begin to have honest and uncomfortable conversations regarding mental health, we can heal. Until then mental health remains a taboo subject as I have commonly seen it in the black community. Until then we are left to guess and wonder about the matter much less normalize healing.
