So something new started happening a couple weeks ago...

Shake away, little boy
It’s the stress trying to escape
Even your problems want away from you
There’s no innocence to rape
 
Fall to the floor, choking for breath
Can’t walk; can hardly blink
A sense of urgency pervades;
Yet all you can do is stop and think
 
If you can break being inane
Then you can cling onto you knees
Rocking back and forth, insane
Oscillation reflex, unwanted disease
 
It’ll pass with time and breath
But it’s never truly slain
Beating down, an inner death
Held onto by your brain

(2013)
