A walk to clear my mind

I have a tendency to overthink

I could feel I was on the brink

So close to the edge about to fall off

About to get lost in my thoughts

They get so deep they overwhelm

Panic sets in because I can’t swim

I run outside to clear my mind

I took a walk so I could unwind

 

I looked around on the trail that I tread

I saw a broken tree upon a ledge

Brought down by the weight of the world

Left on the ground from years before

Like humanity, the Willows also weep

Symbolic…oh no, my thoughts are deep

I decided to just walk away

And avoid all heavy thoughts today

 

I came to where two creeks intersect

Under a bridge where highways connect

Cars drove by unaware of what lives below

There are so many things that nobody knows

My emotions overtook me in that place

My head pounded and my heart began to race

I couldn’t resist, so I grabbed my pen

Now I sit here writing deep thoughts again
