Let Go

My anxiety

Grows with each passing day of

Entrapment and grief.

 

If I cannot grow

Out of my cage into joy

The fault is my own.

 

If I refuse to

Let my mind expand outward

Insanity grows.

  1. Wow this hits really hard! As I was reading this, I felt like my house was the cage that I was trying to escape because I have been it for so long. And when I cant leave, that is my fault because even though we are in a pandemic, I can still walk outside and get some fresh air, but I choose to stay in with my anxiety. Really deep!!

    1. Aww, I am sorry to hear that you have been feeling what I call ‘the funk’ lately! But 9 weeks in and everything starts to feel a little old.
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts and hang in there! Hope you find some happiness. πŸ™‚

  2. Beautifully put, Jaya. Anxiety really can take a grip on you if you’re not careful, and grief and loss only add to the shackles. You’re right, we can choose joy, even if we sometimes need a little help finding the way, Lisa x

  3. I appreciate how you show the entrapment is an outside force, which we didn’t want and can’t stop, BUT we are in control of how we deal with that experience. Ultimately we can chose our responses and we can chose joy.
