I have become


Attempting to become

Less nervous.

But now I don’t think

I don’t speak;

I am nothing.

I worry

For my future

But that just keeps the fire burning.

Is there an end?

Or am I the end?

    I feel you! I think all of us have felt something similar at some point in our lives.

    Yeah… I’ve stood in that place. Been there today. Funny thing is, when those waves of anxiety roll in, they can lead us to such beautiful shores… such deeply human shores. I reckon you’re adding to the texture of this world by not hiding your vulnerability.

  3. I can certainly relate! Anxiety is very exhausting, and there have been days I thought these same things. I’m wishing you, and all of us, the absolute best! 💗

      Thank you! You’re entirely right, anxiety is so exhausting, but that’s why I write- to get the feelings out. Thanks for checking out my posts! I wish you the best, too!

      1. You’re so welcome! I can relate to that as well; anxiety is difficult to deal with, but writing makes it a little easier. Truly, writing is a great way to get those negative emotions out. And of course, no problem! I really enjoyed reading your work, and I’m looking forward to seeing more! Thank you! ✨💖
