we scratch until we bleed

the last year
has taught me so much
fear and anxiety of
past and future

and i have come
to the conclusion
that there
is very little
that happens
in one’s life
that warrants
any time in 
either state.

if ninety nine
of all fears and
just do not happen
logic would
suggest giving them up!

but oh no! not we humans
we convince ourselves
that this time it’s different
this time its real
we scratch and scratch 
until we bleed
and then we cry
over the wound.

we cannot help it
we torment ourselves
and blame everything else

it is a joke
how seriously we take

awakening from the tormenter
is the only path to peace.
