Too much on my plate
So little time to do it all
Multi task, push myself
But I’m still so overwhelmed
Where’s help when you need it
On your own, such a pressure test
Do what you can, that’s all you can do
Sometimes you just might surprise yourself.
Inhale deeply, close my eyes
Air fills up my thirsty lungs
Let it all out, stress released
I can think clearly once again.
Today is the 21st day of the OctPoWriMo Poetry Writing Challenge 2015. The prompt today was as follows:
” I challenge you to write into your feelings of overwhelm; when you feel it, how you feel it, what happens when you feel it, and what you do about it”
Thank you for reading.
