These are the days
That the dark feelings start creeping in.
The “you’re not good enough” feelings
The “you’re failing at things” feelings
The “you will never truly live up to your potential”
Feelings that aren’t true,
But are fueled by paranoid thoughts
Stemming from the stress
That’s been put on my mind.
I’m so tired of falling back to this place
Where I don’t know what’s important, and what’s not
Where I’m no longer enjoying life but just wading through it
Waiting for the day when the world is lifted from my shoulders,
The day that never comes.
The only way to lose the world, is to drop it.
