You Never Said Candles Burned Out When We Needed Them Most.
Not written one of these in a hot while.
What category do I use? Ah noe.
A spark that shoots through me like a fire.
The all too real legend of burnout.
For my former colleague who just got on my nerves
Nothing to see here. just my mind threatening me again
My job is, (un)fortunately a catalyst at times for my writing. This is a piece inspired from my constant worry at work.
This spoken-word poem was my New Year's reflection for 2019 about the experiences of counter-transference and burnout in a psychology internship.
