Anxiety




6 feet under,
buried in a
casket of
expectations, theirs
and my own. Burried
under tonsof paper, suffocated by piles of notes, crushed
by the work I can not do. I wish
I could get out of that casket. But the earth is too dense.

The longer I stay
under the bigger that casket
gets, and although I
want to live my
life I cant get out of
that hole. I cant rise
above and beyond. It’s
so overwhelming
… it puts me 6 feet under.
 

A poem i wrote like 3 years ago. I was thinking about it this morning. Have you ever had that feeling that you have so much to do, that you cant even start? thats what it was about. that anxiety.
