talk therapy

5 Aug

it does not take

a licensed counselor

to make you feel good


sometimes a call to a friend

and a friendly talk

will do wonders


I was once in the dumps

feeling bad about myself

when a friend from another town

called me


he knew

I was feeling down

he told me a joke

and I laughed and laughed

and my mood shifted

and the day became better


talk therapy

may also be done

with a pet

pets seem to listen

and not argue


be your own

best friend

find ways to feel good

about yourself
