Anxiety

My nerves are frazzled

That is just the way I am

Stress weighs heavy on me

I try the best I can

To handle what comes at me

Day by harrowing day

But sometimes it gets me

And I don’t have a say

As to what my body does

When a panic attack begins

I sit back and surrender

And hope that it soon ends
