[Over]think

I live inside my head.

I don’t mean to,

and I definitely don’t want to.

I’d rather live in reality instead.

Do you know what it’s like to overthink?

It feels like you’re under a turbulent sea

of thoughts and memories and fears,

and all you can seem to do is sink.

People tell me to just stop thinking,

but its not that simple for me.

That’s like telling a car sliding on icy roads

to simply quit its drifting.

Sometimes it feels like my head hates me;

other times I think its trying to protect.

I used to beg God to quiet the roar,

but I’m learning to let this mind be.
