Five Minute Friday-Unknown

(A walk with anxiety..)

The walls are closing in.

The air is rolling thick.

Lights begin to flicker

With each breath I’m taking in.

Anchored by invisible weights

Chains rattle, and tears fall.

The crowd has gathered,

I see each face..

But see nothing here at all.

Fear rises and overtakes.

The fury resembles

Other days.

Push away with

Gathered strength

Of mighty power

In untamed faith.

The sea of faces have no clue

Not one knows my name.

The crowd carries on,

Life carries on..

I carry on.

And watch alone,

As anxiety awaits.

-Lisa Wenninger

  1. This is a powerful writing. Thanks for sharing this. My teenage daughter battles anxiety and depression, and I am trying to help her work through all of those thoughts and feelings. Again, thank you for sharing this, and for your honest writing.
