Poem About How Anxiety Feels

This poem is just about how I feel on a regular basis. I've been sexually molested and bullied, and now I suffer from anxiety attacks. This is one of the poems I wrote when I just couldn't hold it inside anymore.

I started having depression when I was only 5 through right now, but this teacher told me I am still able to make new steps, so I'm here to thank him.

Anxiety

Published: March 2015

Chest tightens,
Gets hard to breathe.
My only escape
Is when I drug myself to sleep.

Constantly I wear a mask.
Constantly feeling afraid,
Worrying if the monster will attack me today.

But sometimes I'm at peace
With myself and everyone around,
Or maybe
It's just another pretense
And I wear the mask all over again.
