Anxiety is an autoimmune disease that attacks your brain;

In turn your brain attacks you.

Tells you that you aren’t good enough.

You aren’t smart enough.

You aren’t pretty enough.

That you just aren’t enough.

It tells you that everyone hates you.

That noone could ever love someone like you.

It suffocates you so you won’t make a sound.

Pushes you down until you drown.

Be quiet little one,

The pain will never be done,

I’ll always be here to haunt you

Like an infestation taken up in your brain.

It makes you feel like you’re not sane.

Makes you feel weak

Chokes you so you cannot speak.

Anxiety is a demon that comes back after being exorcised.

Once, twice, three times, more.

You just can’t handle it anymore.

Will anyone understand?

No one will it says.

It’s just you and me forever.
