Taking over- this is a poem i've written about my anxiety problem

Thursday, 11 December 2014

Taking over

I walk down the street

I feel the pavement beneath my feet

But there's nothing I can do to stop

My heart from racing

My mind from panicking

All about nothing

It is taking over

If I had a four leafed clover

I still wouldn't have good luck

It is not written in my life's rule book

I've battled and I've fought

 I've used strategies that I've been taught

But still it only seems

That the harder that I try

The more it makes me want to cry

When my tries fail

But I'm glad that I am still here to tell the tale

 I will be a survivor

From now on I'm taking over

My life is mine to live

And live is what I'll do

I'll keep tearing at this wall of pain

One day I will  breakthrough

I really wanted to comment, but I don't really know what to say. I liked your poem, it gave a very good view of your experience with anxiety, if that's ok to say? Feels weird to say I liked your poem when it's about struggling with something. I just wanted to say I understand the feeling, and I'll stop writing now.
