The Effects of Anxiety

Caving in,
Spinning all around me,
Trying not to think about
What will freak me out

Feeling so unsafe and insecure,
Knowing that there isn't a cure
Only my mind's
Ability to trick itself,
I get so scared,
Especially when I begin to doubt

It's not fair
That I have to feel this way,
I wish that I could just make it go away

To no longer panic,
To no longer fear,
Illusions that my mind creates
Seems inevitable when I'm here

I train myself to cope
With my worst fright,
Can't someone please
Make things alright?
