This piece was based on a prompt using 5 random song titles. The songs I used were:

Waving Flag
Crucify My Mind
All That Matters
Ten Feet Tall
Oops I Did It Again

Balancing Act

Random thoughts crucify my mind
As I try to remember all that matters
In this process, I often forget or am redirected
Sometimes I fall, sometimes I force myself to hold on
Often times, I am stuck and I stay stuck
How cliché but I tell myself: oops, I did it again
So I try to toughen up, and my thoughts and emotions
Become so hard, I go rigid
And then, I become so scared – I am incredibly soft
Like the filling of a teddy bear
But I finally find my balance, and know that I
Need to be -
like the waving flag, standing ten feet tall
