Poems, Thoughts

Telling myself over and over again

Oh please, it bites surely, when the little things you do
torment you and you ask yourself what the hell was I thinking?
but you can’t cry over spilled milk, can you?
as cliché as that sounds, listen up if you really want a piece of reality
shit happens
all the time
it’s up to you to decide to live with a clouded mind
or one that is free but controlled
are you feeling lost or disturbed?
well you’re torturing yourself
it’s a fact and don’t you dare ignore that
take care of your mind and consciousness
i’m tellin’ ya, it’s perhaps better
if you let it go
