Brain is screaming,
My head is spinning.
Words fly through my thoughts;
An endless garble of chaos.
I hear someone calling my name-
Ooh, is that a butterfly?
No. Focus. Keep focus.
Pay attention. Listen. Focus.
Psychology is the study of-
Crap, did I forget my homework?
I think I have an essay due on Monday-
No. Stop it! Listen.
Focus your thoughts, and breathe.
In and out.
Repeat that mantra your therapist said.
How’d it go again?
The stream of chaos continues;
Words crashing down on me like tidal waves,
Sweeping me into their swift motions.
Class is over?
Oh no, I did it again.
