Never Late but Today

Never Late and but Today
I'm never late.
Or in a hurry or forget,
especially when it comes to school.
Except today.
Yes, today it happened.
There's always a first for everything.
But lately I can't seem to catch a break.
It's one thing after another.
I feel rushed, all the time.
This panic won't go away.
This anxiety has become me,
it consumes me and eats at me.
I feel so lost and confused.
Praying for some guidance.
I'm never late
or in a hurry or forget.
Except today,
it happened.

                                                                   Sincerely,
                                                                   Aishah

  1. This echoes a recurring nightmare I have. We must calm down a bit and it will all come right!

  2. I have one of those recurring nightmares that Viv speaks of. I'm trying to get to the airport, or to a concert that I really want to see, and I'm almost there, only to be teleported all the way across town!
    If you're rarely late to school, you're better than I ever was! I was often late to school. These days I take most of my courses on line so I don't have a specific time when I have to be there!

    1. That is quite scary! Can't imagine how that must feel.

      But honestly- this was the first time I was late/missed something. Guess there's always a first for everything right? Good and bad.

  3. I know this feeling all too well. Anxiety really kicks our butts if we let it.

  4. I know the feeling, too, and while my day wasn't anxious I did work with today's prompt and felt inspired to add this little quote on my blog with my poems:
    “If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”
    ~ Amit Ray
    Good job! ~ Raven from Grace and Mystery
