DOWNHILL FROM HERE – 5 MINUTE POEMS

Tired.
I am so tired.
Why don’t I just go to sleep?
Afterall, it is half past 10.
On a friday.

Patient.
I need to be patient
in order for things to fall into place.
Still I try to take control of everything
which makes me feel miserable.

Hope.
I want to hope for the best
even though the best
seems so far away.
Yet I am hopeful.

Action.
I move forward knowing
that any obstacle can be overcome.
My body gets moving
and with it comes joy.
It feels too good to be true.

Blockage.
Addiction now blocks my way.
Or did I put it there?
Is it not myself who chooses my actions?
Do I blame outside forces when in reality
it is me?

Fear.
I am scared
of what might come
and what might leave.

Paralized.
This fear overcomes me.
Any thought of hope or action gone.
Its place taken by terror.

Tired.
I am so tired.
Why don’t I just go to sleep?
Afterall, it is half past 10.
On a friday.
