Focus.

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.
