My mind is in turmoil,
There’s a weight on my chest.
I lie in bed all day, but I get no rest.
The things I used to do with relative ease,
Now terrify me and make me freeze.
When I close my eyes, I’ll never be free,
Demons and devils are all I can see.
But maybe I can escape from this relentless plight,
And slip away like a thief in the night?
So, I head on out for that final mile,
When I meet an old lady with a kindly smile.
I decided to stop, and soon I was reeling,
She touched me gently and asked; “How are you feeling?”
She listened attentively and allowed me to speak,
And the more that I told her, the less I felt weak.
When I stopped talking, I felt a great relief,
And couldn’t understand this new-found belief.
The lady reminded me that life is not fair,
And to lean on friends and family, that’s why they’re there.
I turned to thank her, but she was not to be seen,
Did I dream this encounter or what does it mean?
Then I sought out support, and now feel so blessed,
My mind is clear, and I no longer feel stressed.
So, if your mind is in turmoil, and you can find no peace,
Reach out for help and watch your torment decrease.
