And suddenly
I knew that my world was about to change
I knew I'd have a week to do what I've been forcing everyone else to do for months
And suddenly
I broke

The room was silent but I heard noise
The sound of every persons voice
I knew the floor was solid but it shook
My legs just trembled, I was an open book

My head collapsed, each neuron failing
But did I really have the right to be ailing?
I couldn't eat, I choked on liquid
And if anything controlled me, anxiety did

I wanted to run but I panicked instead
My legs felt like they were made of lead
The room just spun like a merry go round
I did everything I could to find solid ground

And slowly
I knew there was nothing but facts.
Nothing but the cold hard truth of responsibility
And slowly
I let myself cry
