Living with an Anxiety Disorder
When I have anxiety, I feel like a scared rabbit.
I want to hop away and not deal with this world of frightening monsters waiting to attack.
When I have anxiety, I feel like a startled turtle.
I want to put both arms and both legs inside my shell and stay there until the threat passes.
When I have anxiety, I feel like a bird.
I want to fly away from the hunters down below waiting to attack.
My fears so deep, I lose control.
I feel as if I can lose my very soul.
My heart beats real fast; I think I can die.
Then I cry.
"Can anybody help me?"
Can just one person save me from how I feel inside?"
Suddenly; I get control. I get back my soul.
My body gets normal.
My mind lets go.
Everyday I pray these fears will leave me and let my soul gather control.
Everyday I pray God will heal me and let my soul gather control.
Everyday I pray God will heal me and give me peace that lasts all eternity.
Everyday I have faith God will heal me.
Forever I will hold that faith.
Though my faith is weak, I will hold it forever.
