I am supposed to think, and process complex thoughts

I tend to spend my time thinking a lot

I weigh the pros and cons of every issue at hand

I try to ensure that I completely understand

The situation before performing an action deliberate

For most decisions I’ve had time to pre-meditate

If I seem to come to a conclusion quickly

It’s because my experience has helped me

Arrive at that point, not because I’m in a hurry

If I don’t think through things, I’d make mistakes, I worry


As I grow older and acquire some worldly experience

(Including a pandemic that brought changes intense)

I realize I tend to overthink frequently

It’s not meticulousness but anxiety evidently

I suspect from a platform of fear I operate

I think if unknown variables I eliminate

From a situation by examining it as a whole

I would be able to maintain control..

But no amount of overthinking can

Predict a curveball, a black swan event

Sometimes overthinking and over-rationalization

Can also lead me towards an erroneous decision..


Maybe I should not always think as much as I do

Go with my gut feeling, listen to intuition too

Not everything in life follows rules defined

Therefor rather than overburden my mind

I have consciously decided to not think a lot

Go with the flow, pair intuition with my thoughts..
