Actual Conversations

A poem

When someone asks you how you are doing,
I hope you have the courage to speak
whatever it is that’s pressing upon your heart,
or swirling around in your head,
or weighing on your soul.

When someone asks you how you are doing,
I hope you have the courage to have an actual conversation.
