one step at a time.

I want to please everybody
I want to be reliable
I want to be dependable
I want to be counted on
I want to be wanted

but I want to do everything
all at once
and
“No”
seems like
the hardest thing to say.

What is the right thing to do?
Where does everything need to go?
What do I do right now?

Ahh.
Ahh!
AHH!!!

Chaos!
Craziness!
Unorganized…ness!
My brain!
On the floor!
Wait, no!
Exaggeration!
Fuck me on a stick!

Okay
breathe.
Stay very
still.
Take it
one choice
at a time
one step
at a time
one breath
at a time.

All will be well.
