Calming the storm within

Fire, burning in my stomach and chest,

My heart beats louder and faster,

My body starts to tremble,

The anxiety is taking hold,

With sharp claws digging into me,

And its voice shrieking in my head.

 

My chest is tight, the burning pain continues,

I want to escape from this terrible feeling,

I need to calm the storm within me.

 

Close my eyes,

Listen to the calming words,

Breathe,

Focus,

Slow breathing, controlled,

Focus again,

Be in the present moment.

 

The minutes tick by,

The anxiety starts to fade away,

I am feeling much better now.

Anxiety is losing its grip,

The claws are slipping off,

I have relief for now.

I have to try to fight with my weapons,

To calm the storm within.
