I constantly find myself overthinking 

My brain permanently set to high speed 

As if the light is yellow and I’m trying to cross the intersection 

I can’t seem to make it stop 

The little voice in my head 

Always yelling 

Yelling out my flaws and my insecurities 

I look in the mirror 

I open my mouth 

But nothing comes out 

Not even a whisper 

And yet 

My mind is exploding 

Bomb after bomb 

I can hear myself 

But on the outside
