Social Anxiety


When I need words most
The seem to drift away
My brain as their host
Doesn't know the right words to say

A panic sets in me
And everything becomes overwhelming
My self-esteem starts to drop
It feels as if my head might pop

It's scary unexpected
It like I'm infected
I feel as if I'm always being tested
I feel like I'm always being rejected

Why can't I talk
Why can't I make that scared feeling stop
I barely ever leave home
I'm starting to wonder if I'll spend all my life alone

When will this end
When will I start being okay again

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
