It feels like I’m drowning
Soaked in responsibilities
Expected to do so much
There’s nobody there to pull me out of the water

I’m being sucked into a riptide
Too many things to do and not enough time
Not enough of me

I wish I could just give into the water
Let everything go
Take care of myself instead of everyone else
Everything else

But I know I’ll never be able to do that
Because I can’t let myself
I have to fulfill these tasks

Maybe if I fulfill them
I can get out of the whirlpool
Or maybe I’ll just get sucked in deeper
