Freedom

Anxiety
How you have held me 
In a vice like grip
For so many years
Creating a barrier
Impenetrable
Subtle yet cruel
Powerfully disabling 
No one could reach me 
Not even me
Why?...Why?...Why?.. A constant question 
Born out of fear
Fear of rejection 
Fear of failure 
Fear of loneliness 
Fear of nothingness

Slowly, stealthily
Understanding tentatively awakens 
No more harsh words
No more punishing
No more relentless drive. No more hiding 
Instead, like the unfurling of new leaves 
Softness, gentleness, vibrancy
Understanding 
Acceptance 
Calm 
Love 
Peace within 

New feelings, new words 

Excitement
Joy 
Clarity
Flow 
Truth 
Beauty 
Gratitude 

A long time coming 
So worth the wait 
Layer by layer 
Freedom
No regrets 
Clarity 
Thank you anxiety 
Thank you for what you have taught me:
Strength 
Commitment 
Listening 
Thank you
