Have you ever?

Have you ever suffered a panic attack,

One that rings right through your brain?

Have you ever had your world fall down,

And rack through your body with pain?

Have you ever felt like you're drowning,

Even though you're breathing in air?

Have you ever felt many eyes upon you,

When there's not a soul out there?

Have you ever felt completely terrified,

That if you step out your door you'll die?

Have you ever shut all your curtains,

Too afraid to look at the sky?

Have you ever collapsed in a heap,

At the thought of opening a letter?

Have you ever got sick of hearing,

"buck up thing's will get better"?

Have you ever been too afraid to talk,

Too afraid of that look in their eyes?

Have you ever instead looked right at them,

And put on your clever disguise?

Have you ever judged someone,

Laughed and pointed and shamed?

Have you ever looked down your nose,

And thought they are to be blamed?

Have you ever considered their problems,

To be fake because you cannot see?

Have you ever stopped and thought to yourself,

What if this happened to me?

Anxiety is not a fake illness,

It seriously affects your brain.

It maims, it kills, it closes you off,

Your ignorance covers you in shame.
