My brain is drowning.

My brain is drowning
within this age of knowledge
the information is pulling it
weighting it down
it cannot come up
it’s forgetting the automatic tasks
breathe it tells the lungs
it had forgotten.

Opinions are spitting about
and the facts can’t counter enough
blocking a few particles
as the others enter
my brain is drowning
within all the saliva
flinging from their mouths
I can’t keep up
that is an opinion
not fact
I can’t justify
right and wrong
based off a feeling.

Overwhelmed
my brain drowns
it can’t quit
hands pulling at it
prodding it
responsibilities
keep it awake
keep it thinking
keep it fearing
pulling it out of the water
for the only bits that matter
are the words
of the ones I love.

Thanks for reading.
