Anxiety’s “I”

 

Anxiety.

It compels

fear
doubt
self-loathing

It commands
conscious
exercises of humility;
notes, lists, ‘to-do’s’

It deceives
by making one believe
that its rituals are for the best–
it’s the devil speaking
do not let him
take the driver’s seat
and whisk you off
into the abyss–
fight through it.
