Finding Peace Within: A Short Poem on Anxiety

Don’t shame me for being anxious.

It’s a day-to-day battle.

I’m frequently listening to psychobabble,

To help me understand.

I wish I could feel at ease and not worry or overthink things.

How do I move in a busy world of loud voices and consistent judgment?

My heart races, my mind wanders.

That feeling at the pit of my stomach where I feel like an ant among elephants.

Such an unpleasantness.

I can’t breathe

I feel nauseous 

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

Should I end it all with a gun

I need a Xanax to calm me before I become undone!

But even then, I will worry and overthink if I’m even killing myself right!

Anxiety is such a parasite!
