Every time I close my eyes,
There are these flashes I see.
Flashes then lead the way to an unsettling Fear.
The Fear grips me; body, heart and soul.
And yet, there’s a fixed rigidity
Which won’t let me do what I must to drive away The Fear.
It’s like a bucket full of storm clouds which have taken up a cozy residence in me
Constantly raging war with its thunder and lightning
In a way completely consuming me..
It’s all I can then think of; papers, case studies, reports and submissions.
Not a minute of peace
And yet I’m stuck in this limbo – unable to move forward and unable to take a step back
But life goes on, does it not?
This too shall pass,
And oh how I shall conquer thee, Fear, you just wait and see.
