Makes you forget to breathe
But breathe you must
Because all your breaths are truly just.
You are worthy!
You are more than your anxiety,
Though anxiety would never tell you so.
Anxiety can taunt you,
whether you’re actually doing
Exceptionally well or not.
Anxiety will guilt you whether or not you deserve to feel bad.
So listen to your breath
It continues on and on
Without a worry
And only stops when it’s made to.
It can slow down, speed up, go deep, feel shallow, even struggle each day.
But it continues and so will you.
Anxiety has nothing on you.
Tell it, you’ve gone for a well deserved breather.
yet it seems all too blurred by
and though the elation caught
in snatches and relief-laden smiles
i feel again swept up
by the tide
its roiling cobalt crests
wait in kind to wash and strew
the shore of my weary laden mind
i cannot bear this burden
and so i give it up to you
so that i may have some peace
before you name me
as its bearer
i may regret it
i may mislead myself with hope
yet for now i cannot bear the weight
not before i know if it is mine to bear….

i sought prayer
and found relief
from the testing
that i unbeknownst
was asking for
the more i prayed
away my tears
the more i uttered heartfully
the more i found reason
to utter still more beseechingly
for the mercy that had not reached its time to be received

it will only get better
more happiness, more peace, more bliss
more of that oft searched forgetfulness
you can refuse anytime you want
now, later, tomorrow,
did you not refuse yesterday?
then do just quit another day
you deserve it
for sure you do
i know you do
just once then
the very last time
i will not ask again
this is the last time
what is there to be worried about?
what isn’t without consequence?
one life to live
one addiction to relive
find relief now
no other way

an ugly word weightily crowned with meaning
i fear to be relieved lest it rears its self-entitled smugly ringed head.
Serendipity stays loved and far from your loftily held place…
