Crickets Are My Quiet Mind

I hear crickets in a quiet room
where there are none to be found
and I can't quite tell
if it's an auditory hallucination
or tinnitus ringing in my ears.

Insecurity sets in,  
and reminds me of all
the anxieties I once had.

Memories of being told
that I'm unstable
by the unprofessionals rush in,

I remember not to over think this.

Sometimes crickets are just crickets
and it's okay to accept
that no one else can hear them
chirping away in my ear.
