I wrote a poem for everyone

Your heart is beating

Your palms are sweaty

Consumed by the butterflies in your belly.

Your visions a blur

Your mind is frantic

Suddenly your problems seem gigantic.

You feel so much danger

Your thoughts are manic

All you feel is sheer utter panic.

You can't make sense

Of the problems you feel

Everything right now just seems so real.

Your body shivers

Your head feels hazy

You think 'I really must be going crazy'.

What can I do

And what can I say

And will I always feel this way?

There is no danger

Your mind overreacting

Your thoughts temporarily making you feel trapped in.

Breathe through this hard time

You won't always feel this way

Soon you'll wake up and this phase will fade away.

    :the Levy

    It's the middle of the day the night the mornings breaking

    It's a dream I tell myself as I'm kneeling doing this all again

    Forever same prayers in hand

    Is the storm going to take it harder again?

    Tell me how

    Can't you see the wind's beating me strong ?

    I've got no reason to be neither right nor wrong

    Show me how to break the levy lord

    Tell me how

    When the rain it hits my face I feel only what I did yesterday

    I try so hard to make a change

    I believe in myself if only to believe in grace

    I let it go and give it all I have again

    Show me how

    If there is a reason then I will be strong

    I can let these prayers carry me along

    I can break the rules I can flow the plan

    Just light me the way home

    I will try to get there when I can

  • Thanks. Pictures how I woke up but I have ptsd and chronic pain
