Prompt: "Even after all this time, I still..."

Even after all this time,

I still worry

Worry about friends

Worry about family

Worry about money

Worry about school

Stress builds up

Then fear

Then emptiness

The kind of emptiness that is


A void filling a space

A void making a space

Words blur

Avoid filling a space… with ideas

Avoid making space… for friends


Maybe it’s time to

Avoid a void

Fill a space

Already filled with emptiness

I tell this to myself every day

And yet

Even after all this time

I still worry
