hey guys this is a little something about what I go through with anxiety I was wondering if someone else is going through this ....

I can feel it crawling inside of me

I can feel it eating every part of me

This voice inside my head is slowly killing me

I tried to shut it down and make it stop

But its stronger than me

 Every day is a struggle 

Simple things become difficult

Things I used to enjoy are now impossible

Every time I try to break free it punishes me

Nothing I do seems to matter I am still at the bottom of the latter


How do I make it stop when it overpowers me

How can I enjoy life when I feel it slowly suffocating me

I can’t experience anything good all is blurred and dark

Everyday is like being attacked by a shark

I  feel its jaws eating my flesh 

I have so many emotions that I have to repress

I feel that anything can trigger me

So I hide everyday and pray it goes away



I feel my heart pounding so fast

It doesn’t give me a minute to relax

From morning to night I am tortured

How can you live with such a disorder

Scared and hidden from everything 

It convinces me of things I can’t see



Why is it doing this to me 

Why can’t it let me be

I am stuck and can’t go anywhere

It enjoys my pain and despair


Its my anxiety….
