Just a guy with some words in his brain. Never really tried anything like this, but I wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

I don't think

June 7, 2020


I don't think about a lot of things
Like how far away people really are

I don't think about how hot it is in my room during summer
I don't think about how much time I waste
or how much more I could be doing

I don't think about how I spend my time
I don't think about school
I definitely don't think about college

I don't think about all the times I should have said something
done something

I don't think about my past
I don't think about my future
I don't think about anything anymore

Because thinking hurts
I just want to be
to do
to act
to sing
to feel

So I don't think about myself
or others

It's selfish
But it subsides the hurt
makes it bearable

I should think more
Because even if it hurts
It's better than nothing at all
I do think about all of these things usually, but in this pandemic I have kind of given up.
Joining this site and this community is really good for me, and forces me to think and interact.
So thank you, for reading this, and for posting.
If you read this far you're cool.

    I love this, and I get it too. Thinking is painful, dwelling on things is painful, but out of that pain comes growth and wisdom. This is a really good poem.

    yes! I joined WTW during the pandemic too. It really inspired me and boosted me up (I was getting really down) I love this piece! especially the lines:
    I don't think about all the times I should have said something/done something/different -- I can relate so much cause i get caught up in that too often and it doesn't do me any good

    I really like this. I totally agree with the line "because thinking hurts". It's really tough when you want to do things and all you can do is sit there with your thoughts, unable to make them come true. But actually I've been thinking a lot right now, about school, about college, about the situation overall... it kind of helps me to keep my mind busy with something. What do you do to keep your mind busy?

    This piece totally mirrors what I'm going through right now. And you're completely right: thinking IS better than nothing at all.
