by Gavin M Roy

anxiety, like a brick wall
shuts me down, emotional free-fall
paralyzed, stuck in place
fear, a perpetual race
suckle and drain, agony and pain
my self-distain, pour down like rain
let me up, enough-is-enough
rise like atlas, constant strain
victory comes, not without pain
work the process, master the game
avoid embarrassment, avoid shame
