Living With Roommates

Wake up,
Winter morning,
And then it hits.


It's okay,
Especially when
It's not. 

I do my ritual.
I like my ritual.
My ritual calms me.
I say my mantra:
"This too shall pass"
And inside I cry out,
Outside I smile.

Your discomfort 
Is palpable.
What indeed
Would you do

Anxiety and Panic
Are roommates of mine.
I don't enjoy their company,
And they sure as hell
Don't pay rent.
I think we all have
Mine are just louder.

Think for a second,
I'm sure, 
You'll identify yours. 
My advice?
Make your peace,
Drop your baggage.
Take off your coat,
And stay awhile.
