A tumultuous sea of emotions inside me roars,
A constant battle between pain and joy, it pours.
Pain grips me tightly, like a vise around my heart
Aching and throbbing, tearing me apart
It steals my breath and clouds my mind
Leaving me helpless, to suffer in kind
Sadness envelopes me, a heavy cloak to wear
Tears fall like raindrops, leaving me bare
Memories flood in, of love that's lost
A heart shattered, with too high a cost
Sadness grips my heart with its icy fingers,
Dragging me down to where darkness lingers.
Anxiety grips me, like a vice around my throat
Breathless and trembling, a feeling remote
I fear the unknown, the what ifs and maybes
Leaving me helpless, to worry like the babies
Anxiety grips me in its suffocating hold,
Making it hard for me to be bold.
Scare grips me, like a monster in the night
Terrifying and haunting, filling me with fright
I try to escape, to run and to hide
But the fear within, it will not subside
Scared of what the future may hold,
I feel like I'm slowly losing my hold.
Happiness fills me, like sunshine on my face
A warm and gentle feeling, a loving embrace
It lifts me up and fills me with light
Making everything seem so bright
But amidst all this chaos and pain,
There's a glimmer of hope that keeps me sane.
Happiness, like a ray of sunshine, peeks through the clouds,
Filling me with warmth that melts away the shrouds.
And though I'm nervous about what's to come,
I know that I'll find my way, my heart beating like a drum.
For life is a journey with ups and downs,
And it's up to us to turn our frowns.
Nervousness grips me, like a butterfly in my gut
Fluttering and stirring, with knots in my gut
I'm scared to move, to take a step forward
But the thrill within, it cannot be ignored
