Hiccup in Spring

Hiccup in spring. By Anuoluwapo Kehinde

Three years of therapy,

Four months of sertraline,

I thought I was fine.

I’ve found that it’s dangerous to stand by the beach watching the horizon

I’ve gotten lost in the beauty of the scenery and forgot to note,

When the tide came in.

I thought I was fine,

Kept my eyes above the waters,

I didn’t see the sharks lurking below.

Depression is a low blow,

A hungry shark,

A well known dictator, I’ve silently obeyed.

Be weary of the good things

Not everything that glitters is gold,

I’ve found that happiness, is a new shade of pain

When the sun disappears and the sky becomes night

Hold your breath, so you don’t drown,

Prepare yourself with plasters all round

The dictator has come around,

Bow to this oppression or be broken by it

This is the hiccup in spring.
