I can’t explain, 

This level of pain.

I can’t stop crying, 

It’s like I’m dying.


Everything is shaking, even my teeth,

I can’t breathe

There’s a tightness in my chest.

Why can’t you take a rest?


My worries control my thoughts,

Constantly distraught.

My head hangs low,

I’ve got nowhere to go.


In class I sit at the back,

No one can see the attacks. 

When my palms get sweaty, 

And I try to speak,

it comes out like verbal confetti. 


Everything becomes harder,

My mind becomes darker.

Focusing and working isn’t so easy.

It almost drives me crazy.
