In That Chair

Last week I introduced our newest series, In That Chair. The series contains poems written by me, Dr. Kendra O'Hora, about what exactly happens in a therapy office. You can check out this blog post for the why behind the series. 

My intention is to share the poems on Instagram as well as the website to give life and meaning to each piece. I debated sharing an explanation of each poem - where I was in my journey or the context to each thought written on each particular day. But,

part of the beauty in creative writing is how a reader ascribes meaning to each word.

 In that chair,  you go back and forth,  back and forth.  Uncertainy surrounds you,  nothing is comfortable,  you are scared to land  scared to step  you are desperate and done  ready and paralyzed  we circle together  we swirl each time  we process and consider  and then you change your mind.  You go back and forth,  back and forth.

In that chair,

you go back and forth,

back and forth.

Uncertainy surrounds you,

nothing is comfortable,

you are scared to land

scared to step

you are desperate and done

ready and paralyzed

we circle together

we swirl each time

we process and consider

and then you change your mind.

You go back and forth,

back and forth.


Until next time,

-Dr. K
