PANIC

by Claude Peter Dhuet

Like a carnivorous animal stalking its prey
It pounces upon me with hardly a word of warning,
This conscienceless monster called panic.

It depleted me of all my positive attributes,
All my avenues of escape are abruptly blocked,
From whence did it come, I do not know,
what can I do? No where to go.

How could it be this is happening to me,
Just a few minutes ago, I was happy as can be,
I was just sitting there, with nary a care,
Not a slight hint, there was danger in the air.

I can hardly breathe, I know I will die,
My heart is racing, blood pressure is high,
I?m shaking all over, don?t know what to do,
If it doesn?t end soon, I know I am through.

Take a deep breath, maybe take two,
It?s happened before, it?s all up to you,
To stop this cruel monster, don?t let it win,
With sufficient resolve, you?ll be happy again.
