Poetry On Odyssey: Anxiety

Ask me about my day.

Poetry On Odyssey: Anxiety
Trigger Warning: This article discusses content that may be triggering to some readers

To the world: Dazzling and full of glitter,

But deep within; miserable and bitter.

Despite all my attempts I continue to cry

It keeps on getting worse, no matter how hard I try.

When you ask me about my day,

I just don't know what to say.

But is there any need to conceal all these bottled emotions that I feel?

The walls are sinking in,

Sores and burns on my skin.

It's there even if you don't see,

Behind my smile there's a lot of anxiety.

It's a secret that nobody should know

I'm told to just calm down and let it go.

But it's there even if you can't see,

Behind my smile there's a lot of anxiety.

I wish I could be strong, I wish there was a way.

But I can't do it right now, not today

There's nothing left except an ache,

Pulsating through a heart fit to break.

Life's most important things are achievements and wealth.

But we say nothing about mental health

Yes it's still there, even if you can't see

Behind my smile, it's the anxiety

My mind's too restless to be still

But I can overcome this and I will.

Even if it takes a while,

Someday I'll surely smile.

Soon a happy face will be the only thing you see,

No more depression, turmoil or anxiety.
