Just Breathe


Confusion strikes, feeling like I've lost my mind
Sometimes I don't know where I am, I don't feel right
Dizziness, fear, upset stomach, I sense I will pass out
Don't know what is happening to me, don't know what this is about
I can't breathe, feel like I'm going to die
no one can explain why, they don't know how I feel
People pretend to understand I at times question if it is real
It is very real, it keeps me from doing things that I want to do
You have no life it keeps you from being you
People look at you differently and you hide from the world
Ashamed I'm not a normal regular girl
I want my life to finally have meaning
Drugs never did the job to numb my feelings
Low self esteem, keeping to myself, loneliness
It gets exhausting and you no longer want to go through this
This woman that goes through hell each day isn't me
Not the true me, I have to remind myself to relax and just breathe
One day I hope to be free
For now, I need to just breathe
