just be

overwhelm
that old familiar feeling
of too much, too quick, too fast
time whizzes past

as thing upon thing
fills up my life
shoulds
haves
could haves

how to slow down
how to break free
to stop the feelings of overwhelm
from overtaking me

break down
feeling so lost
yet glad to break free
let it all show
shout, cry, wail, scream
this isn't enough
this simply can't be
i won't let my life
be lived this way
by me

trying to please
never succeed
stop now
just stop
its time to be me

forget the appointments
cancel your plans
its time to
breathe in
and
breathe out
to
stop
and just be

Yay, Kirsten! You go, girl! I am proud of you. I will remember this lovely poem on the many occasions I need to slow down.
