Anxiety — Poetry

anxiety self-awareness mirror self-care panic attack

I feel a pit inside myself
I know that it is fear
Things are going too good by far
I feel the end draws near

My happiness is not a joke
It’s bubbling from me in a wave
But the terror, it holds onto me
Like a cold hand from the grave

I worry that it will all come undone
This euphoria that I am feeling
A mighty blow, life will cast
And leave me stunned and reeling

I know I must calm my nerves
Things will not be as bad as I’m thinking
This constant existential dread
May drive me to go out drinking

I will not bow to this fate
I want to enjoy this moment
So, I will keep going on
And will ignore this internal torment
