Unwanted Thoughts

Unwanted Thoughts

From creeping up as a fleeting thought
It slowly built a duplex in my mind
My struggle each day seems all for nought
For with it, there came more of its kind

There’s no one to blame but my very self
Now anger rises within my heart
If I had stopped it from creeping up the shelf
Then at least I’ll know I played my part

A bird made its nest atop my head
It’s shouldn’t have been but I didn’t want it to go
So I gave it room and then kept it fed
Not knowing it was a time bomb waiting to blow
