This poem reminded me of panning photography. Not only because of the shape of the poem but because of the book in this photo. This book shows the truth of hardships and explains how life isn't always full of rainbows and daisies. No, life does have hardships and darkness. But you must find a way to get through the darkness, because there is light. You just have to find it.

If that's making you dizzy, here's the poem-

Break the Cycle
When I begin to feel overwhelmed,
I tend to shut down.
My thoughts are being chased
and I begin to drown.
When I begin to feel overwhelmed,
I have to remind myself to calm down.
My body tells me to stay hydrated,
and I begin to sometimes frown.
When I begin to feel overwhelmed,
I have to fight the mind that is my own
and it tells me again what it has stated.
When I begin to feel overwhelmed,
I have to remember that it's a cycle,
My soul and heart knows it repeats like a record on vinyl
and I have broken it before.
So this time is no different,
and I will survive once more.


Sincerely,
Aishah

    1. Glad you liked them! Made me both a little dizzy, the first one when reading it like that, the actual photograph, when taking it, it made me dizzy because I literally spun around in a circle in my lawn to get the detail in the photo. Haha
