Message from Writer

Hey guys. My writing seems to be life lessons in a way because I have a tendency to write about struggles or love in my poems. My goal is to make sure no one feels alone because despite your circumstances or your issues I promise you people love you. You matter. God loves you. God wants what is best for you. If you ever need a support system message me on here. I know life is really hard right now but we are all fighters and we can get through this.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Welcome to the Mind of an Overthinker

February 9, 2021


If you tell me something good I promise you I will overthink it
I will rip it apart into shreds searching for the truth in it
My mind will be consumed by the what ifs
I will lay awake saying it can not really be true
If you tell me something bad I will think of a way to solve it
I will work my finger until they bleed to move mountains for you
If you tell me you care about me
I will second guess you
I will tell you to prove it to me
Welcome to the mind of an overthinker
Welcome to the realm of a determined overachiever
You are welcome to stay for as long as you like
But please remember that at night my thoughts come out to haunt me 
I will take you down the rat race I run
It is exhausting and I assure you no fun 
I overthink until the deed is done
And then I lift my eyes towards light
In hindsight overthinking never helps
It simply makes my stress level swell
Welcome to the mind of an overthinker
Who does not know how to manage stress
But I assure you my life is not a mess
I am just doing what I do best
Overthinking then being told
I am worth far more than gold
Then all my thoughts will fade away
And my mind will calm
Oh soon some day
Welcome to the mind of an overthinker
Whose thoughts have slowed and heart beats quicker
Who has learned to see more good in life
And tries to forget the pain and strife
If you tell me you care I will take your word
But break it once and I will go absurd
I will listen to you and let you qualm my fears
For there is life without a swirl of what ifs sounding in my ears.
