Vortex of Life

Spinning, Spinning, Spinning

By Mercedes ChavezPublished about a month ago 1 min read

Spinning, spinning, and spinning

Before I could act

Before I could breathe

Everything was out of control

Taking hits from every which way

No way to block, no way to deflect

Spinning, spinning, and spinning

I can barely look up

But I catch a glimpse

Past, present, future

Can't get away from what was

Fighting to survive what is

Scared to know what will be

The vortex has come crashing down

I tried to be tough

But it has become too much

Way too rough

Barely hanging by a thread


It suddenly stops

I can see the sky again

Though it has gone

Never to be seen again

Here.... I still stand.

Come with me, lets go on an adventure together, see the world through my eyes, let me paint a picture with my words, I promise you will be able to feel what I felt the first time I experienced it. Love, sadness and everything in between.
