A reflective poem

A paralyzing fate; is what I see ahead,
‘It’s something I can’t take’; I think while I’m in bed.
I cannot see the good;
I only see the bad,
I’m so misunderstood
And therefore I go mad.
I am swimming in this ocean,
That I call: ‘exhaustion’.
Trapped in obscurity, foreseeing the inequity.
It is paralyzing; it is death,
It is aggrandizing with each breath.
It is crippling my heart and debilitating me,
And while it’s tearing me apart no one else can see.
I no longer speak of this;
What is the use?
With “opinions” and suggestions
People just abuse.
How do I flee this maze?
Or make this comprehensible,
If I survive this phase
I’ll declare myself, invincible.
