When It Attacks

Panic attacks like a thief in the night
Random maybe and out of nowhere
It wrecks your so-called
perfect life

It appears without a warning
And in so many different forms
Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing
You never see it coming

You can’t hide from the mark it leaves on you
Covering your whole body with angry red scabs

Maybe I inherited this madness
Genetics wouldn’t spare me,
And nurture played show and tell with my amygdala
So I never stood a chance

And just like you
I couldn’t stop the panic from attacking
But I swear I won’t suffer
as quietly
as you
