Spinning Out Of Control - A Poem

Updated on February 25, 2013

Out Of Control

Source

What Set My World Spinning

I wrote this poem after suffering from BPPV or Benign Paroxysmal Vertigo. For six weeks my world was spinning out of control and no one could tell me what was wrong or how I could stop it from happening. Finally, an ear, nose and throat doctor told me about BPPV and I was sent to a vestibular therapist to learn how to overcome this problem. I am still having some problems with this, but the therapy is helping.

Please Just Stop!


I just want the world to quit spinning

In these circles that never cease

Around and around my world goes

Slowing only just to give a tease

I just want the world to quit spinning

I want to know what will happen next

I don’t want to keep searching

I want to find only the best

I just want the world to quit spinning

I want to be in control

I want to know what is going wrong

This spinning is taking its toll

I just want the world to quit spinning

I want it to quietly go away

I don’t like when the world spins

I want the normal to stay

I just want the world to quit spinning….

      Very direct and on point. I'm sure plenty of people have their world spinning out of control, but they don't have your physical ailment. LOL! Voted up! :)

      That was great! Short and sweet, I too, want the world to quit spinning, sometimes! So much going on in the world, people and their differing opinions, politics, etc...Good job!
