FREE WRITING

"And count,
two, three, four.
Breathe out,
two three, four."

"Take this diary,
twice a day,
write down the things
you need to say."

"And why do you think that?"
"Yes, that's true."
"It's not the world.
It's all just You."

Give me the paper
that says I can go.
Let's lie to each other,
pretend we don't know
Your Breathing Exercises Don't Help When I'm On The Way Home And The News Tells Me That People Are Dying.
 
I haven't a clue whether this existential anxiety is an actual thing that happens to other people but let me tell you, it's Not Great.

    I am sure you meant it inside of a context that I don't know but let me tell they are wrong about one thing: it is not just you. It happens to most of us, maybe not in the same level, maybe not in the same frequent but we all feel existential anxiety and yes, it may feel like no one else is dealing with the same thing but let me tell you that everyone has their way of managing things. It is a very good poem and I just want you to know that you are not alone. I am not trying to invalidate your emotions by saying that. I am just saying that if you want someone to talk to, I am here.

    Wow... this makes me sad even if it's probably true
