the wave of life

the ocean is quite like life,
and lifes problems could be compared to waves.
ten feet tall or barely breaking in the sand.
sometimes I feel as if I am drowning in the ocean
hardly making it up, to catch my breath.
my mind just continues to spin,
thinking continuously about my decisions and regret.
I know playing these situations over will not help me,
but like the wave that continues to pull me down
I cannot help it.
sometimes it hits me out of no where.
it doesn't matter where I am, or what I'm doing,
my body will fill will panic and go into flight mode.
I cannot help it.
I am tired of feeling this pain, so today
is for that to change.
From now on, I will try my hardest to beat this
crippling anxiety.
My past is behind me and I am ready to look ahead.
even though I'm scared of what's to come,
I will preserve my way to the top.
I want to feel the warm sun of my cheeks
and the cool air flowing through my hair.
I want to feel like me again, swimming freely.
