Monsters inside me

I keep my thoughts safe between snug lines on blank pages

hiding from the demons that prowl my brain,

looking for innocent thoughts on which to prey.

I keep my thoughts safe from the monsters inside me.

They mess with my head and make my heart sad.

they turn thoughts dark with no way to get out

Am I choosing the wrong thing

I always worry that I’m choosing the wrong thing

I worry about it when I think about the effort it takes to get into the nursing program

I worry about it when I think of how amazing it was to watch a real surgery

I worry about it when I’m pouring my soul out on a page as if it’s my oxygen

I worry about it when I miss the adrenaline of being onstage and my acting dream

I always worry that I’m choosing the wrong thing
