I’m doing it

I don’t know how I’m doing it, but I’m doing it
Every time I want to stop, my head drops
I get stuck in a mental box, my thoughts get blocked
Trying to open new doors & everything is locked

I don’t know how I’m doing it, but I’m doing it
Sometimes I feel paralyzed, in those moments all I can do is fantasize
My voice is dead, I can’t vocalize
I’m going to lose if I don’t prioritize

I don’t know how I’m doing it, but I’m doing it
My thoughts I need to organize then summarize
I’m hypnotized, so mesmerized I’m horrified

I don’t know how I’m doing it, but I’m doing it
Stopping is never an option
My words are so silent, my photos don’t even have captions
The negative vibe is up for auction
Proceeding with caution, It’s time to take action

Hello,
My name is Glory Castillo. I have been writing poetry since a very young age. Being an only child, I needed to find a way to process pain alone. I believe poetry is a form of art, expression and therapy. It helps me cope and it also makes me happy when other people can relate to it. Being in the health care field, gives me a better understanding of how important it is to let your mind relax and your thoughts flow. Poetry is my therapy.
