Borderline State of Mind
The pain comes in rapidly
Unexpectedly it flows into your vicinity
Like a swallowed pill kicking in at the bottom of the hour
You’re taking another raincheck
You don’t know what to believe anymore
Do you allow the sadness to storm over
Or do you take control and roar
The truth is that you have to battle your way
Life wants to test, trick or tease you
It’s up to you to be aware and react accordingly
Letting it swivel you around won’t bring you goods accordingly
Take control in the moment
Implement positive seeds, sprouting positive deeds
But even doing that tilts you at an unease
There’s a war on your mind
Mental illness is like a savage in the wild
A stranger that wants to make you uneasy
Can you spot it before it makes you uneasy?
Is this really a borderline state of mind?
Or only a test of time?
Feeling Sad: A Test of Time
What if sadness is a test of time?
Once you cross the finish-line
Your sadness dissipates
Instantaneously it evaporates
You wonder what changed
While celebrating your victory
There is no more shame
Was this all a test of time?
Riding it out till the end
You experienced some pain
And now your spent
Life has pulled away its chains
You’re now free to explore happiness for a change
Is this too good to be true?
You might wake up tomorrow again feeling blue
Have some confidence you tell yourself
Insecurity might reel in sadness mixed with hell
Feeling Sad: Moving Forward
It’s been weeks since you last felt sad
Maybe it was a test of time
You take advantage of the situation
You’re moving forward
You’re finally content
This situation can never end
You’re optimism is blowing up
You’re nowhere near spent
Your mind is high on life
You never want it to end
Where was this state of mind the last couple of decades?
Let’s hope this never ends
