When did I last sleep?
I do not remember.
I try to recall
Where am I? oh yes!
I’m here. I’m home.

Good, Good. Take a breath.
Take your time.
It happens as such;
Every now and then
Breathe and let it be.

It’s an overflowing sea
My mind just can’t stop
Spilling fluids, neurons
Firing. Ah! it stopped
I wonder! I think and think.

What was I thinking?
Are you really reading?
Should you read?
Should I write?
Does it matter?

Take a breath.
Let it be.
