Dakotah Lavender

The world is a blur to me,

as I shake and shiver with worry.

It does not make sense to you,

It makes none to me too.


I pick my lips, bite my cheek,

due to my brain being a freak.

Just that I have no control,

for that, I look down on my soul.


I look at myself in disgust,

and ask is it myself I can trust?

I second guess all that I do,

afraid that I'll lose to you.


Why is it my brain can't see,

how ridiculous it can be.

Am I just a complete hot mess,

or is it that I am put to the test?

    Every one worries. Admitting this is surely one way to prevent ot getting out of control. Especially when you admit it in such lovely verse.
