It is a difficult task to keep your mind at ease
When the world is speeding around you.
How does one take the time to concentrate
When it seems as if there is not a second to spare?
Anxiety is heightened and emotions are sporadic.
Demands are being dished out one after the other.
And the expectation is a fully-functioning system.
How do I even gain composure?
I’m a mental disaster and all I can see
Is a blur of what’s going on around me.
I don’t remember what I started
Or what I’ve been asked to complete.
Someone just called my name
But I can’t locate where the sound came from.
My humanity feels like it’s been shredded
And thrown into a hurricane
And politely handed back to me.
What do I do with this thing?
I’ve lost myself in the rush.
