Taking it one day at a time.

Yesterday I couldn’t get out of bed

I had way too many thoughts inside my head

The monsters were getting near

and all I could think about was fear

 

Fear of failure gripping its talons around my throat

making it hard for me to stay afloat

The only escape was to sleep the entire day

Sadly there was no other way

 

I couldn’t stand upright

The clouds were hiding the light

My momentary escapes were dreams

That could hide my many screams.

 

Life was going by too fast

and I was worried about the past

The future scared me even more

I didn’t know why, not for sure

 

I just knew I had to slow down

before I ended up on the ground

unable to rise again

It was a wise decision, my friend.
