There are times when
I can't control my emotions.


I am overcome by anxiety
to the point that I can't
even think straight.


My mind gets into a fog;
my eyes blurry with fear.


Everything becomes hazy,
and I can't see beyond
my own defeating thoughts.


Nothing seems to lift
me out of this temperment.


I try to focus elsewhere
or turn to a friend,
but the mood remains.


Usually the only thing
that helps is a new day.


I woke up this morning,
and it felt like yesterday

never happened.
