Anxiety Is

Anxiety is the voice that tells me how I'm wrong

Singing the same damn song

Never off just always on


Anxiety is that snaking feeling

That grabs my heart and leaves me reeling

But I just have to keep concealing


Anxiety is the buzzing sound

That makes my head keep spinning round

And I just feel lost but never found


Anxiety is dying like a flower

As I run out of power

So I start to wilt and cower


Anxiety is trying to keep fighting

But it strikes me down like lighting

And everything is just so frightening

    I really like this. I associate with it deeply. I often wish anxiety had a "mute" button. Great job articulating what many of us feel, but can't express.
