Anxiety = Gravity
Anxiety is like gravity
and our heads like the planets.
The pull of anxiety
grips onto ideas like gravity
pulling them into our orbits.
The heavier they are
the more likely they fall,
hit the surface, and crack it —
With anxiety the pull is stronger…
It’s like a tractor beam
pulling in problems
that masquerade as most important;
making what’s important seem impossible
and life downright not plausible.
Your head aches.
The Earth shakes
and nothing seems stable.
Friends become enemies
and instead of huddling up beside you
your enemies become your friends
whom you let cuddle up inside of you!
So instead of running to those who can guide us with help,
we push them aside under the guise of
“It’s for my health.”
Leaving us to take on things to heavy
that further burden our load.
We’re caught in the habit of listening to the alien voices
that have been brought into our orbit.
Before anxiety, we’d have known who was worthy of listening to;
but now that our radars have been knocked out of wack
not only do we have trouble finding our ways back —
but we also can’t separate the lies from the facts.
