Feeling Of Anxiety - Poem by amar qamar

Scared of what? I can’t say
I got to go, have to getaway
Heart begins to thump, to race wild
Feeling frightened, alike a child
Breathing quickens, I want it to slow, get back in control
But it is like I’m digging myself an unfathomable hole
Deep inside, I begin to drown, I am sinking
I going to die right here and now, I start thinking
Begin to sweat and body goes weak
A quiet place of calm solitude, is what I seek,
The whole world, my brain, my existence, I need to escape
Sometimes death seems a way out, frightening thoughts, take shape
Maybe I will find peace in the afterlife
But I’m terrified of death, just as I’m frightened of life
The mysterious nature of life and death, keeps me feeling insane
Unbidden Thoughts well up, disease my mind, my bane
I try thinking of my family my kids, this does actually help a while
But then weird thoughts spew up, like malevolent bile
People ask am I alright? I hardly dare to speak
Lest I mentally break down and totally freak
Stop being a wimp, get over it, You have a good job and life…
You should be thankful, you are not poor and living in strife…
What is there to get anxiety about, they say…
It is a shadow I cannot name it, grasp it, no physical demon to slay
Popping pills seems the only method
keeps the unknown phantoms at bay
I need help, someone or something to take it way
Hope I wake up one day and it is all gone away
Like a bad dream
Please let it be true, I pray.
