A poem

Circle, cycle

I’m headed down the drain.

The speed of this demon

Is mangling my brain.

I claw and I fight

Knowing this won’t be my end.

My heart is confused

With such a drenching reign.

Feelings swirl,

Conflict with logic.

I breath in and out,

Sweeping it into neurotic.

Mind spins, heart races

Keeping pace with this,

Excruciating race.

Then one day, the beating stops

My breaths are slow

Meaning well worn stalks.

Stalks filled with reminders

Of days past by,

When there were bruises

Or a swollen eye.

I have a reprieve…

How long will it last?

I don’t care, for I love for today

Calmness and aware,

Settle in and I sway

With the release of another

Pounding drenching day.

I still live.

I have a chance

Thank you universe for seeing me,

Giving me my stance.

  • Finding my peace again, day #2.
    Finding my peace again, day #2 Day two of calming myself the fuck down. Spent another night in the jeep mini camper.

  • I’ve been absent, relearning how to just “be”. 6 June 23
    I’ve taken a week off. I had an epiphany last night, and realized that I have forgotten how to relax. I know if you follow me, you might think that wouldn’t be an issue, especially if you watch any of my YouTube videos. But as I was camping last night, I found myself fidgeting, not […]
  • 3 consequences of using chemicals on your yard. How it’s hurting the ecosystem, our water, animals and livestock.

  • Happiness, sadness, nothingness…weirdness
    Most of the time during a crisis, I absolutely can’t think straight, and I make decisions when I shouldn’t, when I’m “intoxicated” with a certain emotion. At the time of beginning this post, I was REALLY sad, right now, I’m just tired, and sort of numb. The sadness isn’t as overwhelming, and I was able to see through the fog, and realize for a split second that “this too shall pass”. #emotions #processing #mentalhealth #don’tgiveup #advocate
