War of the Mind

War of the Mind

You perceive a threat,
Your body prepares,
Fight or flight.

Gut wrenches,
Heart quickens.

Your mind races,
You plan for every scenario,
And how to fight back.

It festers,
Eats away at you.

Anger clouds the mind,
Everything is muddied,
All you see
Is that
One thing.

You’re prepared to fight,
To go to war,
Let the shit fly,
Consequences be damned.

You let life get to you,
When it’s all so,
Inconsequential.
