Mister Anxiety

Dear Anxiety

Pain lives inside of me,

Like a raging fire hugs a lost soul.

Reaching out to quench my anxiety,

I found that my roots weren’t deep enough.

Learning to give back to my truth;

Mister anxiety whispers, “hey, lost souls wander forever; I ain’t done yet.

A big drop falls from my eyes.

It covers my soul;

Mister anxiety smiles.

Is this the weakness in me?

How can I face my anxiety?

It beats me up like a rogue,

While stealing my joy.

I am shattered and bothered

Running without direction,

Where’s the path that leads to my escape?

Dear Anxiety

Let me learn to crawl before I walk

Free my wounded heart

Haven’t you gone deep enough?

Mister Anxiety,

Haven’t you cause me to sleepwalk through memories?

Leaving me with the torments of a broken heart

Dear Anxiety,

Enough Is Enough!

I am finding all my shines of sun rays;

Reaching to my truth, like a dove in the sky.

No more will you hug my mind and enslave my thoughts, Mister Anxiety.

I found the signal to my departure deeper than I could ever imagine.

Yes! I did!

Goodbye, Mister Anxiety.

My fears have become my stepping ground.

You! Yes you, Mister Anxiety, are no friend of mine.

Bang! That’s me slamming the door

Goodbye, Mister Anxiety.
