I wake in the morning, I hear an alarming banging on the door of my mind
“Get up at once!” “Stay in to hide from the day!”
“So much to do!” “Leave it all behind!”
Voices, voices, voices… I strive to keep them at bay!
“You are nothing!” “Work to become something!”
“Behold the power of the world!” “Find the freaking power you have!”
The cries of contradiction leave my spirit crushed and crying
Broken alone in the intellectual prison, no one speaking on my behalf
Excitement, nervousness, irritation, tension,
Sadness, despair, lethargy, hyperactivity, bored and overwhelmed!
Too much to feel but nothing I sense! Oh! The confusion!
On every dimension, inside I am hemmed!
When night falls, I retire in utmost exhaustion
I may have done nothing today, but my mind and soul fought a war
You tell me I look fine, and say I am lazy without question
Then you know not Anxiety, nor her pains and ugly horror!
