Illustration for a childrens book on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Here is the book and I need a illustration for each verse

"What is going on inside my head"

Sometimes I feel sad
Sometimes I feel happy
Sometimes I wish this was just a fad
I don't always want to feel this sappy

When I touch my toys I want to wash my hands
I wave them in the air just like a fan
When I see a door I have to count more
Why does this make me feel so sore

I want to line my toys in a row
To make sure everything feels safe with the flow
I flick the lights to count the click
Oh how I wish I could quit

I want to always wear the same clothes
It makes me feel safe
Why does everyone around me oppose
Just let me be and let me have my space

I have a hard time speaking my feelings
Of what goes on inside my head
No one understands about my dealings
Sometimes I just want to crawl under my bed

What is wrong with wearing two different socks
So I am the only one on the block
It makes me feel safe
When I am in this place

People don't understand when I don't pick up my toys
It helps me to shut out the noise
Keeping the toys all in one spot
Makes me feel like I have a better shot

My feelings are hard to explain
So I keep them to myself
So no one is to blame
When someone thinks that I am lame

When I go out to the store
I want someone with me to make me feel safe
The person that I ask thinks I am a bore
And always seems to make me feel disgraced

Why won't people understand me
That I want to be free
From all the things in my head that feels so jumbled
Thinking of everything all at once makes me feel like I want to crumble

Going to school sometimes make me feel sick
The building is big and made of brick
To many people all bunched into one room
Make me want to fly away on a witch's broom

When at school and at my desk
All my pencils sit in a straight row
I really do try my best
To just go with the flow

When on the bus and headed home
I want to sit in the same seat all the time
We are told on the bus not to roam
Nor are we allowed to stand up and climb

I have to count when petting the dog
It keeps my brain from being in a fog
The dog and I go outside to play
He listens to me when I ask him to stay

At night before I go to bed
I check the doors many times to make sure their locked
How I wish I could make this stop
I repeat this so much it hurts my head

When there is chaos in the house
And it is not quiet as a mouse
The feelings inside of me are so unclear
Everything inside of me turns to fear

Some grown ups confuse me by telling me I am silly
When all my thoughts get kind of hilly
Why do they yell and tell me to stop
When all I feel like is that my brain is locked

One parent lives here and the other parent lives there
Pulling my thoughts so I feel like I have none left to spare
One parent is nice, one parent is mean
Going between two places there is no one to intervene

This makes my thoughts inside my head
Want to go and hide under my bed
I want to wash my hands more
All these feelings I want to ignore

People get mad when I ask to repeat what they said
I don't know why I need to hear it repeated
I have to do this to feel completed
What is going on inside my head
