Panic! (Just About Everywhere)


sitting in a corner

watching the sky through a crack

in the window, my soul

sees the light I once lacked


a chink in the armor I did believe

was all that kept me from being able to see

but they all could see

that I certainly wasn’t confident in me


slight change ruined my emotion

panic at the everywhere caused commotion

in my lungs, and on these pages I cry

I’m younger than my age is


today begins, tomorrow ends

same story, misunderstanding of friends

being just like you, I can’t ever pretend

but here I am, again and again


beetle crawls along my arm

reminding me of the slope I’m on

soon to be squashed, or flicked

little nuisance, move along

  1. You write from a deep sense of feeling as you share your struggles and anxieties. Feeling isolated must be very difficult for you. Keep up the great writing.
    Thanks so much for reading all of my posts today! I really appreciate it.
