"Do something"

I was just sitting and analyzing some random thoughts when I heard a voice. The voice was very low and I was unable to comprehend it. The room in which I was sitting was filled with sun rays which were coming from a huge window on the left side of the room. Dust particles were dancing in front of the sun rays. There was a sudden hotness in the surroundings due to the sunlight and I was feeling depressed.
That voice was now repeating frequently, it felt as if someone was there trying to say something to me. My eyes were trying to spread their vision by staring at the sunlight.  I was afraid to go to the other room and look for the source of that voice. I just sat there feeling more depressed. Outside of my window I saw people on roads, walking, driving, talking, shouting, and living. I just kept looking at them for some time.
I tried to take my mind away from that voice, but it was impossible. I was not even able to look for its source, my fear was acting as a despot and was ruining my mood. I then got lost in a thought. The thought of never being able to do anything in life.  I was still wondering without any clue about what to do next.
The entire day passed, and I was still battling with that voice. I felt as if something was seriously wrong with me. The sun rays were gone. I was still able to see outside my window, the streets were full of light, and people were still doing their respective jobs. As I diverted my attention to my room, I was devastated. Darkness was now in power, ruling over my room.
The voice was still there, but now I was a little bit more depressed. There were no particles of dust dancing in sun rays, there were no sun rays, there was no hope. The voice was now rustling inside my head with higher frequency. I looked outside at those people who were still doing their jobs, and I felt relieved that they are there. But I knew that night was approaching and they will soon be heading towards their homes, and I got scared.
A few hours passed and the voice now was ruling over my mind, my mind was caged. There was total darkness inside my room. I looked outside the window. There was no one outside. I was terrified. The voice was killing me, and it felt like I was at the verge of dying, my thoughts were suffocated inside the prison created by that voice. It kept playing again and again. And then I lost it, I surrendered myself to the surroundings. I was laying on my bed and that voice became clear. It said, “ Do something”, I woke up and walked towards the door and switched on the light to again witness the dust particles dancing, and the voice was gone.
