And My Advice

I spend too much time in my head. I know.
Rumination shades into obsession -
or better, a grim state of mind
a progression,
a slow
glide to a gloaming of haze.

And I've been this way since
forever I guess. Since third grade at least
maybe younger.
It grows stronger or weaker
with seasons or weather
but lingers
through brightest of days.

And if the hoarse whisper -
the song of malaise calls you too.
My advice
is to keep slogging on.
It will never be gone, yes
but sometimes you smile
even laugh
and the rest doesn't matter.
