How do you care for yourself?
Do you care to spend some time with you?
Do you care to find out what’s up with you?
Do you care to try to care more for you?
And you, how do you care for me?
Do you care to listen to me?
Do you care to talk with me?
Do you care to show some empathy?
Do you care even for a little sympathy?
And you, yes you, how do you care?
About that child so sick in his mind
Their actions all flag read
They try to reach out to cry out
Even adults are not spared
Cause we all aren’t the same, some minds are healthier than other
So how would you care?
When a patient walks into your door?
When an e-mail comes into your inbox?
When you phone rings at odd hours?
When maybe the brave track you down the street?
Would you call the cops?
Or maybe the ambulance?
Prescribe more pills and send them off?
It’s good to know how you’d care
It makes all the difference how you care
The care you show the care you get elsewhere
I have tried and it works
And let’s be real: it could be anyone
Feeling the knack anyday
And so please all: think about how you care
How you care about you and others
