I Hate This Feeling

The heart pounding

The fast breathing

Thoughts racing

Oh, how I loathe this feeling

Will I get it right?

If it’s wrong everyone will laugh at me

I’ll just sound stupid

I just want to get rid of this feeling

I feel sick to my stomach

What if it’s not the 90 I hoped for?

What if it’s a 60?

God, take this feeling away

It’s horrible I know it is

Hands trembling now

I try to find a way to stop them

Stop that! This feeling is unnecessary

The teacher comes to me

96! Yes!

Now, why was I so anxious?

I’m so pathetic for freaking out

I wish the feeling of anxiety didn’t

exist at all
