Hello, My name is Anxiety.
You may not know me but, I know everything about you.
I am everything about you.
I am that sinking feeling in your gut,
that stops you from meeting new people.
I am the way you don't raise your hand in class,
because you're afraid of being wrong.
I am the reason that you cling to your friend,
because only they can makes you feel safe.
I am that constant feeling of doubt,
lurking in the back of your mind.
I am the way you feel weak and helpless,
because I won't let be feel strong.
I am the reason you take so many bathroom breaks,
because you just need an escape.
I am Anxiety,
and I am not your friend
