"small concessions lead to a compromised life" is so on the nose. That appears more suffocating than active choices that cause a downward spiral. I really like that you focus on the frustration with non-movement.
Cindy Frenkel

Strive? You achieved it!
Sarah Kahn

Theresa, Your tears were so moving for me because they added to the text, to the meaning for me of what lies in-between the communications with our parents. Your emotion filled in a lot for me. THANK YOU

Cindy, just a private note: as a person who has lived thirty years with depression, making my own quiet plans and trying to decide how to answer probing questions, I found your poem and your subsequent words spot-on. Thank you for helping to raise awareness.
Cindy Frenkel

Elizabeth Macklin
