Here I stay in a place I haven’t yet known sitting as an anxiety infused soul.
I am not a being wrapped in flesh but a being wrapped in fear.
It’s the uncertainty of the unknown that bothers me, what I won’t know till later and the things staring me down but I can’t see.
The oblivion of tomorrow is what gets me.
I let the worry choke me until I’m too worn to fight back any longer, I give in.
I don’t want to fight you anymore because this isn’t a battle I can win without you.
As I call out, the panic in my chest dissolves into tears.
I let you wipe them away.
My stubborn heart eases when you call me “Child”.
When I give you the burdens of my heart you give me peace like nothing I’ve ever felt before.
The fear that I am fades away as the love that you are covers me.
