As I try to balance.

I hear a little voice
it yells
it needs more
I hear another little voice
that one needs something else
I turn around
do several spins
grabbing this
then grabbing that
and I sit
searching legal jargon
that mostly contradicts
on how to self publish
then my mind drifts
and I read
this is best
and that is hazardous
and I then I think why is it offered
and the worries
at a surplus
as I try to balance
all of this life
and I think
I keep trying
and I hear a little voice again
and again I grab this and I grab that
and I sit down
then I stand up
to work my lungs
and my heart
because my heart is a struggle in itself
fatty tissue
fast beats
and lungs that can’t breathe enough
to keep up
and again I keep going
and this surplus of worries
I can’t give away
I share
and within that share
they’re as stressed as I am
and we try
and I think
this society has created a surplus
of overwhelmed individuals
and yet we don’t want change

Thanks for reading.
