Get a grip they say When my mind is weary Its sluggish ways Masking away intelligence.
Get a grip they say When my mind is on fire Flashing many brilliant ideas Like colorful fireworks As my mouth pours with sparks.
Get a grip they say When my mind is full of rain Tears pour down my face My heart broken in two For the thoughts of misery Keep on pooling.
Get a grip they say When I try to reassure myself It’s all going to be okay To keep the mask of sanity On my trembling face.
I can’t get a grip anymore The mask is falling Shattering against the ground All my sadness, anger, and anxiety Comes out like a hurricane Roaring and ready to be heard.
My hand reaches up to grip something It reaches yours as you pull me close The warmth of your arms Giving me a ledge to grip onto To get back up and go again.
