Struggling to breathe

Picture courtesy of

Trying to breathe but
larynx tight
Throat constricting
in the fight
Chest heavy with
the weight of the world
As pressure mounts
and events unfurl

Like a plastic bag
over the head
Restricting life and
even breath
Fighting for freedom
from the stresses of life
To no longer fear
and no longer hide
