The first thing that I do on waking
Is worry.
I don’t know what about
But my heart is pounding and my head is racing.

I need a packet of cigarettes.
I worry.
I might have a car accident
On my journey there.

I need to go shopping.
I worry.
Will I have a panic attack?
Or faint.

I need to go into town.
I worry.
Will I forget the reason why
That I went into town for.

I worry.
