Ten feet tall

Five feet tall

Sometimes I feel small in more ways than one

Anxiety presses against my chest and takes my breath away

Insecure and worried

Insecure about the way others view me

Insecure about how I view myself

Worried about nothing

Worried about everything

Then I wake up

Eyes crystal clear and taking deep breaths

I AM TEN FEET TALL

I am not my anxiety

I am not small

I am ten feet tall
