Freedom to Feel

Freedom to Feel

A Poem by Missy Lorraine
"

As a college student, I am sometimes prone to anxiety. This particular poem was written right before a big test I took a couple weeks ago to help ease the anxiety I was experiencing at the time.

"
My heart beats fast
like a drum
right out of my chest-
threatening 
to burst free
of it's skeletal cage,
shattering 
my trembling sternum-
Perhaps
injuring itself
in the mindless process.
But it does not 
think
that far ahead-
"freedom"...
"freedom"...
is all it can see,
all it can feel,
or comprehend
in it's terrified
state.
"Freedom".

Author's Note

This is super rough, and kind of experimental, so don't be too harsh. But still be honest with your opinion of course.
