What Should You Do?


United States

I nodd my head sympathetically and listen.

So many problems that I connot fix.

A big, glaring, "What Should I do?" twists and tangles my thoughts.

Because what should you do when a teacher wrongfully accuses you of cheating;

When your long-distance boyfriend ignores your calls, but you still love him;

When every night you go home to a verbally abusive family;

When you feel so depressed you want to kill yourself and no therapist can help you?

All I think is, "What should you do?"
