Excerpted from The Upside of Survival
By Josephine Smith
The thoughts elude my mind
The thoughts condemn my way
The thoughts confuse my instincts
The thoughts propel my actions
The thoughts negate my confidence
The thoughts dim my capabilities
The thoughts destroy clarity
The thoughts warm of disaster
That may destroy me!
