Anxiety For Nothing

Anxiety For Nothing

written by: Glen McKenzie



It starts slowly

Like a train departing the station

Imperceptible at first

Its weight provides momentum


Why pull away?

Building speed is so unnecessary

Imperceptible at first

Anxiety drives the locomotive


Why is this?

The pain of self-swirling emotions

Imperceptible at first

Energy wasted on nothing


Anxiety marches forward

All so freaking unnecessary it seems

Imperceptible at first

It darkens the light


Why does it?

Make light seem dark and foreboding

Anxiety has no place

The light must shine
