Locusts

Thoughts a plague of locusts
Chewing up your mind crop
A munching buzzing army
That will just never stop

The past returns to hound you
The future lays in wait
The present bound in shackles
Of past and future fate

Thoughts swarming with locusts
Chomping upon your brain
Destroying good emotions
With bleak and dreadful pain

A trap of your own making
As tough as any jail
Struggle to escape it
But once again you fail

Straighten up and battle on
You know you can’t give in
Grit your teeth and take a breath
Don’t let those locusts win
