Overwhelming

Closed eyes, covered ears
Shut out the light, the sound
Switch off, power down
Jump off this spinning globe
I can no longer, I cannot go on
Too much, too much I cry
Loud, bright chaos surrounds me
And my body can no longer
Withstand this rat race of life
I’m not good enough
I don’t do enough
I haven’t given enough
More, more and more
The world chants for more
And I have none left to give
I gave all that I had
Never left any for me.
