Anxiety

by mysticalpisces   Jul 13, 2017


A prison lays inside my mind,
continuous worrying,
unnable to unwind.
Irrational thoughts lacking evidence,
A circulating cycle,
with unecessary relevance.
Anxious feelings impacting my life,
acting as obstacles
making me think twice.
Or three or four times,
because that's what it's like,
essentially committing emotional crimes.
Thoughts repeating themselves,
creating false problems,
lengthening the mental shelves,
Inside my head,
which contain the draining,
feelings of dread.
Why is this the case?
If I knew the answer to that,
I would be in an easier place,
where my mind could relax.
I envy those,
that wake up each day,
able to live their lives
with negative thoughts at bay.
If I could do this,
a weight would be lifted.
Almost ascension,
energies shifted.
A peaceful way of living,
I could be friends with my head,
accept the emotions
and let them pass instead.
For now i will keep pushing them away,
until I am able to be free of them,
Maybe one day..
I hope and pray.

      Thank you for welcoming me to the site, I feel that everyone on here has been really welcoming. And yes it's lovely that me and my dad are both into writing poetry, infact he inspired me to start writing poetry just last week which is when I joined the site and I think I have found a new hobby that i love. Thank you for your kind words, yes I agree a lot of people are able to relate which i suppose allows us to not feel alone in our suffering. X
