Sometimes I feel like my moods are like a light switch,
Forever turning on, turning off,
One moment I’m happy, The next I’m upset,
Then there’s the aggression that feels like it burns a hole straight through my chest.
I try to remain peaceful, I try to remain calm,
But sometimes I must admit that they certainly can begin to take the upper hand.
It can definitely be turbulent,
Super disorienting too,
Sometimes I feel so lost and sucked in,
Like I just don’t know what next to do.
I try to write my feelings down,
To process and deal with them on my own,
But sometimes I need a helping hand,
Swallowing my pride admitting that I just can’t do everything alone.
Sometimes I want to switch off,
And to feel the emotions no more,
Sometimes I just want to hide away,
Stay at home and lock the door.
Something so small can frustrate me somedays,
And my inner critic starts to bully me inside,
I listen to music to calm the storms within,
And breathe deep until the pressure in my mind begins to subside.
When it first hits its intense and overwhelming,
Sometimes lasting only for seconds,
Others last minutes or hours,
I don’t like to let them take hold of me,
Or to give them any unnecessary strength and power.
I pray for God to enter my mind,
To help me restore the peace and balance within,
I know with the universe and angels here by my side,
That the darkness and the intrusive thoughts can never again win.
