Sweating helps

Sweating helps
It helps me to see more clearly and feel better
Before it was bad
My mind went places I told it not to
My head was heavy and stomach swollen
I couldn’t look myself in the eyes

The sweat dripping off my body is like medication
Like nothing ever was better or worse
It just is
Settles the score and leaves me be
Be who I am or am suppose to be
One day I will learn

Till then I will just continue to sweat
To feel better
