My anxious mind awakes
When there's nothing to be anxious about
Starting the rollercoaster of overthinking thoughts
Stopping me from whatever I'm doing
Having fun
Anything comes to mind or a certain something comes to mind
There's no stopping it
Only to cope by writing this poem
A process I know way too well
So known that it's a routine
Part of my routine
Doesn't even bother me
Don't ask me why I let it interfere
There's always something to think about
Think within what I'm thinking about
Just have to let it be
But not consume me
Like it haven't already
Sleepless nights
Early mornings
Never knowing how the days are gonna be
Not necessarily it is what it is
Not an opinion
It's just the facts
