Anxiety & Me [a poem]

By Kathy Ha | Featured Contributor


Does it ever end?
I’m tired of the inner turmoil
I’m tired of being anxious
the rollercoaster ride of emotions
swirling and churning within
old scars reopen
past nightmares haunt
doubt invades, fear paralyses
silent screams that no one hears
I keep building my wall
uninviting, tall and proud
but the façade is brittle
weathered by the years
I’m lost in despair
unsure of who I am
uncertain of how to change
afraid of the road ahead

I am tired of being me.

    • I’m sorry to hear about your anxiety and how it makes you feel. I hope you’re able to find support for the stressors in your life. I know work stress was a major part of my anxiety at one point and I didn’t like who I became as a result, so I can understand what you mean.
