The Battle in my Mind

The Battle in my Mind

1-25-19

I don’t feel like I’m winning

I’m too tired to even fight

I’ll close my eyes a little longer

Perhaps wake up when there’s light

I have a box full of excuses

When I don’t want to go outside

Anxiety smiles, and I’ll chose one

I hate so much to run and hide

There’s a battle that’s been raging

Since I was a little boy

Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose

I cannot make a simple choice

I fail to make the slightest progress

I let too much time pass me by

I make the same mistakes like clockwork

For no apparent reason why

I can pull out of this tailspin

If I had a steady guide

I’ll just tumble without purpose

Tomorrow brings another try

There’s a battle that’s been raging

Deep inside my silly head

I want to change, I don’t want to be afraid

Please take my hand and help me win
