Pain once injected in your system never seems to leave,
Happiness and any other acknowledged antidote doesn’t penetrate its weave
Sadness when creeps inside stays until you bleed,
Anger and revenge being treacherous feelings that your soul then feeds
When the nervous energy of your anxiety strikes and brings you down,
When your deepest fears unravel in front of you like the magic of the clown
Evasion being an easy path to embark upon to decimate the burden that engulfs,
But at the end in this battlefield of emotions none comes to your help except self.
