My head is crowded with responsibilities,

All the nooks and crannies stacked up with

To-dos and must-dos and should-dos

That dance dizzyingly through my consciousness

And clamour unceasingly for attention

And my brain fumbles to prioritise

And loses concentration

And wallows in despair

And yearns for fun and focus

And gradually my energy drains away

As I am reduced to the tasks and duties

That the world thrusts upon me.

Is this living or merely existing?
