The Metamorphosis: A Poem About My Mental Evolution

It is best to reflect on your progress rather than letting it sit in your mind to fester and be untended to.

The Metamorphosis: A Poem About My Mental Evolution

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

That now,

I'm not,

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.

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months.
