Dear Anxiety, I'm Convinced That You'll Never Leave Me Alone

Anonymous Anonymous in Stolen Diaries on 10 January, 2017

Dear anxiety,

Help thyself
You are my faithful friend,
You never shy away,
You never give up,
You are part of who I am now.

It is a losing battle I fight with you everyday, 

You made me defend throughout,
It's a crude world that you have exposed me to,

I threaten, bash, and shame you
But you are still with me.

Oh anxiety
I dare you to speak to me,
"Hello anxious, you seem transformed," I exclaimed

"I am not transformed but just hidden
"Beneath thy anxious self."

"I shall reveal myself to you today"
"As once a man said, courage is not the absence of fear"
"Who are you?" I asked bewildered.

"I am your subtle, understanding, and empathizing self.

Just less known to the crude and tough world
I will continue to be faithful to you.
True to my nature.
Count on me,

I am your sensitivity."
