I want to run away from my problems,
I want to hide from my fears,
I want to be left alone by society's expectations,
I want my anxiety to stop taking over my thoughts.
I would rather have my monsters live under my bed than inside my head.
But I can’t run, or hide, or ignore, or control my nightmares… I have to wake up.
I have to understand my monsters,
I have to chase my dreams,
I have to face my fears,
I have to gently let go of the weight I can no longer hold, before I drop it.
