Dear Anxiety

four years

four years of pain, confusion, and fear

four years

four years of anger, sorrow, and tears

four years you abused me

four years you used me

four years you destroyed me

four years of crying at you to just let me be

four years of letting you control me.

no longer

no longer will I feel pain, confusion, and fear

no longer

no longer will there be anger, sorrow, and tears

no longer will you abuse me

no longer will you use me

no longer will you destroy me

I am stronger. 

I am healing, clarity, and courage

I am stronger

I am love, empathy, and peace

I am stronger than abuse, use, destruction.

I am stronger than you

four years. 

no longer, 

for I am stronger.

This poem is about: 
Me
