Anxiety

My life is a sea of anxiety

I feel like I'm drowning

I need help, reciprocate me

I’m falling apart at the seem

And I only have me to blame

 

Do your best and you can't fail

I've proven that wrong time and time again

I've tried all the steps

I've walked on the edge of success just to fall

It's starting to look look like I'm chasing my own tail

 

Your brothers never had this problem

I'm not them and I'm sorry for that

Now I just sit around looking solemn

It's a hit to my self esteem

Do I have enough in me to follow my dream

 

But I've got to keep trying

Learn to breathe underwater

Become friends with the bottom dwellers

Learn how to perform CPR on myself

Sew myself back together, I'll be fine

 

My life is a sea of anxiety

I feel like I'm drowning

I need help, reciprocate me

I’m falling apart at the seem

And I only have me to blame
