Rear View

Trying to focus on

the here and now

while a voice in my head

is screaming how.

It’s hard not to look

in the rear view mirror

when you are struggling

with your own terror.

The future has yet

to arrive

yet here you are searching

for ways to survive,

The answers are not

easy to find

when you are busy

wrestling with your mind,

you close your eyes

before taking a deep breath in

as you prepare for a battle

you know you will never win.
