Drowning

I feel like I'm drowning But I'm on dry land Everyone else is breathing fine So why is is that I'm dying inside? This air feels like water It's slowly seeping into my lungs It's a matter of time Until I'm finally done This air is killing me So why is everyone else breathing Are they fish with gills? Or am I just that one That can't survive in life This air is like water It's killing me so slow But as slow as it's going It's almost my time to go I finally let the water take me The water everyone seems to breathe so well But this water It was so toxic It was the end of me So why did I die drowning While everyone else Could easily breath
