Today, I am shaky
Anxiety spiking
Everyone else looks happy
Not I, I am shaky
Head’s all over the place
Body rebelling
Nausea, aches and pains
Telling me to stop, go, stay,
Slow down, speed up
Leave, Hide, run away
Today I am shaky
Head’s all over the place
And my anxiety rules
With iron fist
That punches in the gut
Tremors and nerves
They ignore my orders
To stop, desist, refrain
I am ignored
Because they insist
Today I am shaky
