We Care – Layla’s Poem 

The care plans and assessments
The forms and deadlines
The medication changes and diagnoses
We are there.
The meltdowns and the tears
Frustration, pain and isolation
The lack of help, lack of hope
We are there.
Through ten mile days
Through longer nights
Breathing in to prepare a fight
Endless calls and paperwork
We are there.
Underpaid, undervalued, undermined
Low self-worth, exhausted eyes
We carry on.
Can’t lose our minds
We are always there
We care.
