Strikes Again


Racing mind and nonstop motion

Shaking legs and bitten nails

Painful head and shortened breaths

Anxiety strikes again


New assignments, new anxiety attacks

More work, more stress

The pattern is never ending


Worrying and worry, it never stops

No one notices the silent break down

Or hears the pounding heart


A constant battle

Between wanting to be successful

And wanting to breakdown

Anxiety strikes again
