The Big Race


Thoughts are racing through my tired head, as I lay here anxious and alone in bed.
Thoughts are racing trying to win, to determine my actions but will I give in?
Thoughts continue to race all through my brain, feeding my internal struggle making it harder to contain.
Thoughts are racing all over the place, resulting in this tired, worried face.
Thoughts still racing just look deep into my eyes, expose all this fear I've been trying to disguise.
My mind is becoming a terrifying place, I begin to tremble inside.
Like a child under the covers I desperately hide.
Thoughts finally slowing down drugs beginning to "kick" in,
These thoughts have lost tonight but tomorrow who'll win?
