calm yourself

trying not to panic
panic makes things worse
control the things
i can control
focus on the verse
panic-1393619_960_720the world is
closing in on me
the challenges
immense
i will rise
as i have risen
but damn…
this is intense
distract myself
with comedy
mute the
inner screaming
sip some tea
with no caffeine
keep
deep
breathing
keep
deep
breathing
.

  1. I Could actually feel the panic while reading this. It could be that I was already in a state of panic so it spoke to me but a good piece nonetheless. simple yet perfect.
