My mind is in the clouds,
I'm so high I can't come down.
My thoughts are super loud,
I thought I was okay, but I realize
I'm not okay with the situation,
My body is losing all sensations
I lay limp on the bed, no need for medication.
I had to wake up and free myself from my mind,
Free myself from the pain,
that was becoming a mental drain.
My therapist told me to breathe,
And with her help, I learned to grieve,
to feel closure and relief.
I learned to take things slow, live life, and go with the flow.
I use my five senses on the daily, to reset my thoughts and harness my feelings.
I can't control the things I can't control,
because if I do, my mind will overflow.
Before all this, my actions were restricted,
my thoughts were controlled and I was becoming extremely distant.
I'd cry in my room and wonder my purpose,
Why am I here? Am I even worth it?
But then I learned to live for me.
From that point on, my mind was set free.
No more self-judgment and no more pain,
My mind is a temple and it must be maintained.
It's time that I worry about me, myself and I,
I'll stay in the moment and from there I will thrive.
