Writing poems is definitely new to me. Writing has helped me get my feelings out and it really does make me feel better after I’m done. This morning, I was feeling really anxious and while I was sipping my coffee, I thought to myself “I am tired of feeling this way. I have to make a change.”
Part of this new chapter in my life will be allowing myself to move on from the past. What’s done is done. Feeling anxious and sad won’t solve anything. It’s only going to hold me captive longer, and I don’t want to be a prisoner to anxiety anymore.
I hope you enjoy my first poem written for the world to see. I hope I can inspire someone else to also decide that they are bigger than their anxiety.
Anxiety and Coffee
Sitting here drinking coffee on this beautiful day,
wondering how my life turned out this way.
The choices I’ve made make me feel so sad,
I never thought my life could turn out so bad.
I want to be happy, I really do
but my past hurts me, and it scares me too.
Anxiety controls me day and night,
it’s time to take back control and put up a fight.
If I let my past control me,
I’ll never be free.
I’ll take on the world,
right after I finish my coffee.
