Alone With My Thoughts

June 17, 2009
By Anonymous

Exhausted, weary, and drained

I collapse on the couch

Finally, a second to breathe.

The musical is over,

Breathe in, breathe out.

AP tests taken,

Breathe in, breathe out.

School winding to a close,

Breathe in, breathe out.

I’ve been waiting for this day,

The day my hectic life would slow down,

The day I could spend time on myself.

But suddenly, as I experience free time,

I wonder if I’d rather be studying, or rehearsing.

For as I sit in my room, alone with my thoughts,

I wish I had something else to occupy my mind,

So I could shove my insecurities to the back of my mind,

Because, believe it or not, as depleted as I was before,

Nothing is more draining than anxiety,

For busy times will come and go,

But worries are always with you,

Always there behind the smiles, weighing you down.
