What it’s like to Overthink by Julia Wood

What it’s like to Overthink

Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning
Life takes over,
Big waves and currents,
And I don’t know how to swim
I get caught up in the riptide.

My body gets thrown in every direction
My limbs quivering and snapping
Feeling like I’m about to break
But at that moment, just as I take
What I think is my last breath

My head goes above the surface
And I’ve never seen skies clearer
And my lungs are unclogged
And the waters only knee deep

So maybe
When you’re at your breaking point,
It just means

Better things are coming
