My mind swallowed me whole
relentless control over
mind, body, and soul.
Frightened that I was being engulfed
and never to survive,
I prayed to God to release me
from a panic-stricken mind.
Life is very precious, and not taken for granted,
but that one evening I felt as if I was stranded,
alone and very unsure of what would take place next.
Mindfulness matters and that is what I had to keep in check.
Days have passed like they normally do,
I’m so thankful to still be with all of you.
