Breaking Free

When I worked at a
Mental Health facility
As a Recovery Specialist
I couldn’t help but notice how
Sane some of the intakes

I don’t think a lot of them realized
How “crazy” your average asshole
On the street is.

I meet people everyday
More inept
Than half the people at that

Some of them belonged there
But others would have done
Better elsewhere.

I left years ago
And it’s been mostly
Smiles ever since.
