It all began with simple thoughts
Now all of them are tied up into messy knots
Or so I thought
But really I was never taught…
How to deal with it all? How to deal with people?
Their tantrums! Their accusations! Their way of finding flaws!
It was all a battle raging in my head
Trying my best to avoid all that was said
But reality finally caught up with me
It hurt, it hurt a lot
I can be smart
I can create something that can be considered as art
But I cannot stop myself from the overthinking part
Overthinking it all
Overthinking if my decisions are right
Overthinking if it was worth the fight
Overthinking if I’m enough
Overthinking if I’m strong enough
If only I actually knew
The answers to my questions
Searching for them at every direction
If only I could stop the overthinking part
Maybe then only everyone would think my decisions were smart.
