Expectations - like the never ending ball and chain of a society that Upholds patriarchy racism and destruction of the natural world.
Piled so high, rooted so deep, into the fibres of everything we do.
Everything we touch.
Everything we say.

Hollowed guts.
Binded nerves.
Frayed like a rope.
Shattered like shards of glass.
Organs in an acid bath.

Mind drenched in panic.
Body shred while torn.

Riddled with anxiety - implosion from back to front.
Trapped in mind. Trapped in soul.
In a cage - of bone and flesh. Restricted thoughts.
Get free - Be free. Constricted flesh,
Head against the wall... no no breath.

I don't want anything to do with this, I don't even want to passively take Part. There's a cop in every one of your heads, and bottles turn to Crutches in our hands. It's a constant struggle forced. We're lost as we Find our way.

Culturally inflicted, culturally maintained.
Anxiety culture - Maimed.
Culturally inflicted, culturally maintained.
Anxiety culture - Pervasive, ingrained.
