Ring around the rosie…..
Goes the many thoughts!
This one, that one, will it ever stop??
This thought is about the past,
And this thought is about now!
And this thought is about what will happen!
I really just want to shout!!
I smile! I laugh! And I play to keep the mask on!
Can you tell it’s here?
I hope these thoughts go away but they’re chit chatting away!
Told as a child “it’s just in your head” and “you’re making it up.” Never helped to understand!
No wonder space looked so inviting! Being so peaceful and quiet, with so many shining stars!
Then told to “get my head back to Earth and stop day dreaming.”
Books, music, and work are only a distraction!
The past keeps talking about what’s happening with the future and now!
Can I run and hide?
Is looking deep inside myself, the only way out?
Will I get lost?
Who will hear my shout?
