Preoccupied

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






What preoccupied your mind?
What consumed your soul?
What dilemmas did you find when you lost control?
What stirred you to fever pitch?
What disturbed your peace?
What dilemmas did you niche when you missed surcease?
What demons sullied your dream?
What denied your hope?
What dilemmas did you teem when you couldn't cope?
What roadblocks got in your way?
What cordoned your path?
What dilemmas did you play when you took a bath?
What kept you awake at night?
What tortured your heart?
What dilemmas did you fight when you fell apart?
What worries captured your verve?
What concerns were real?
What dilemmas did you serve when so few reveal?
