When too tired to sleep
The automatic response is to go directly
To PANIC & ANXIETY!!!
Calm is way too overrated
And difficult to find in times of need.
Whereas PANIC & ANXIETY
are familiar and always available.
PANIC & ANXIETY go directly
To CRASH AND BURN.
It’s so easy ’cause it’s all you know.
Going online or asking for help
Seems too complicated.
Besides its a fact
Whenever mood swings are up (in number)
The internet is down!
