Poem : Contradictions

I feel like I’m always focusing on the wrong thing

The devils in the details but big pictures overwhelming

Gwen Stefani sang 

“The moment that I step outside

So many reasons for me to run and hide

I can't do the little things I hold so dear

'Cause it's all those little things that I fear”

And I wonder why I even speak at all

There’s no new thoughts, only new iterations

The more you know, the worse it is

But hope is our only chance

Make it make sense

And it does and it doesn’t and it does

And I didn’t think I would make it this far

I’m happy to be alive and I can’t believe I’m even here
