What makes you anxious fist tight and clenched jaw
Teeth that are grinding as you slam the door
Your brain is chattering nonstop at mach speed
At every level fear hides what you need
Like mercury retrograde your heart is aflutter
Sometimes it’s for you sometimes for another
Uneven breathing marks the passage of time
Sometimes you stop taking air for a while
What is the cause of this excitedness
A future unknown is that a good guess
The animal child that lives within
Likes its routine and where it’s been
Our adult ego and our questing spirit
Takes us new places to stretch our limit
As we prepare for the journey ahead
Playing out scenarios on a map with some dread
Terror of failure is a death of a kind
When it reeks havoc and tortures your mind
The good news we can learn to resist
Opening awakening treasures in our midst
What are you currently anxious about?
Will that anxiety prevent you from moving forward?
What could you miss because the fear conquered you?
Has fear often stood in your way?
Have you ever learned how to do it anyway?
Would that be of value?
