Out of Control

{Click image for source}

The thoughts in my head
Are out of control
They consume me completely
Body and soul
I can’t think straight
Can’t focus on a task
Getting anything done
Is a really tall ask
I analyse and wonder
And question it all
Sift through the minute details
Like a puzzle I wish to solve
I have restless nights
As I struggle to sleep
And any food in my stomach
I fail to keep
All the unpredictability
Is driving me nuts
Knowing I lack control
Is so bloody tough
This is anxiety
This is what it can do
But this is life as well
And you kinda got to choose
Whether to stay in your head
And listen to those thoughts
Or live life instead
And give it all you’ve got
Stay fully in the present
And do what you love
Just accept that the worries
Will continue to hover above

Until next time,
