    Something in me has broken
    Shifted and I'm not jokin
    See I lost all hope in what I was Hopin
    Meaningless words that falls deaf when spoken
    I sit still counting backwards from 10
    Remembering who I am and where I been
    How I have face my fears and now there my friend
    Together, forever to the bitter end
    They say what don’t break you makes you stronger
    But seems I have Broken, just took a little longer
    They say absence makes the heart grow fonder
    Sometimes I wonder
    I close my eyes wishing the feeling would leave
    I'm finding it hard to breath
    But I used to handle it better with tricks up my sleeve
    Leaving no time to grieve
    And now my teeth chatter and I can’t stop it
    My heart is racing like a rocket
    WHERE IS MY ZANAX.. IT WAS IN MY POCKET
    May be you need one before you knock it
    I close my eyes but it does not help
    I try to think of anything, just something else
    But each thought more twisted than the last
    Got me retracing steps of my past
    Steps that leads to no where and fast
    No need for breaks, foot heavy on the gas
    ….. got me questioning my own survival
    Counting backwards from 10 needing my Bible
    I need to remember not to let you define me
    Needing to move forward and not let you remind me
    My past is the past so no need to rewind me
    Today the Devil will not win as I cast you behind me
    For this time
    Free from being intertwined
    In search of peace of mind
    Being realigned
    Redefined by better design
    Caring less if you don’t like it or cosign
    So with a Open Mind
    This time
    This time
    I must decline
    As I leave these anxiety behind
