Howie Good

Human Resources

The woman in HR

had hard eyes

in a doughy face.

I had come for advice

on what to do

about my sadness.

Most of what I said

she didn’t understand

and didn’t want to.

In lieu of actual help,

the woman in HR

placed a box of tissues

on the corner of her desk.

  1. Love this! Isn’t that the thing? So few know how to offer real help to those struggling with depression. If they could just understand it’s a “struggle,” that would be a major first step in understanding. Perfect end line!! A box of tissues. So typical, right? Lol!!
