Anxiety


Dear anxiety

Your best friends

Fear and guilt

Accompany you


Fuelled by imagination

You steal all the peace

Oh this happened, fear reminds

Worry, worry, sweat, sweat


The past haunts

Stories of things gone wrong

The future daunts

Visions of sorrows unfold


A real incident

But may occur once

In the head though

Many occur a million times


The mind and body

Know not

The difference

Between the real and the unreal


Reacting the same way

As if the event happened

The body panics

The mind suffers


Tired and weary

Wanting to run away

Where to, known not

Just far far, from here


This moment right now

Has no issues

But lost in the woes

The bliss is gone


Deep inside it is known

It is a madness that prevails

Wishing to just let go

But held back by guilt


Pain is inevitable

Suffering is optional

This piling of events

Makes a mountain of a molehill


So dear guilt and fear

Please vacate this house

There is no more room

Your lease is over


For new tenants arrive

They, who can't live, with you

One goes by the name of Love

And whose friend is called Peace
