The Last Straw

The stress weighing down
My sobs rolling down my face
I can’t control this mental release

Just make it stop
Make the stress stop
Make it stop

I’m in a sinking pit
that keeps growing
My responsibilities

Getting heavier
The world crashing
Before I can catch it

I have to do everything
So that I can breathe

If I lose control
Fail everyone

I can’t stop
the second I stop
I’m gone
