The Feeling of Being Anxious

The Feeling of Being Anxious

A Poem by Jakl and Hyde
"

This is the feeling having anxiety in everyday life.

"
Anxiety is the constant worry that anything is going to go wrong or happen.
It feels as if my mind is only focused on the bad. Its hard to think about the good.
I want it to stop, but it only gets worse.
It attacking and attacking and attacking.
I try to shield my thoughts but I'm getting weaker.
When the shield breaks It will not stop.
Sometimes no matter how hard I try to distract myself, I can't.
I need help, but I can't let it escape.
I talk to someone but it doesn't always help.
Don't try to understand, you don't wan to understand.
Just listen and hear what I'm trying to tell you.

I have anxiety too and depression. It's hard but sometimes meditation helps me. You will never get rid of it entirely but you can and you will control it with time instead of it controlling you. Just believe in yourself. You are worthy.

I have had two panic attacks a few years ago and suffer from anxiety . Let me tell you this is how it feels.
This drips with feeling. Good job in decribing something that is so hard for many of us to explain.

I think more people should use poetry to describe mental illness so that other people can try to understand it a little better. Very good poem, the only thing I would like to see more of is the physical feeling as well as the mental.

This is good very good. Over time you will get better. I have been writing for a long time on and off. I will support you in anyway I can. My advice to give is this. Keep writing everyday even if it is for just one person.
