Oh for a life ordinary

July 23, 2020 § 2 Comments

When anxiety takes me
There’s darkness all around
and seeping through my body
Fear, like lead in my stomach
And guilt weighing down my heart
Every movement is through cold sludge
Every breath a surprise
My heart lurches and from the centre
dread races to the tips of my fingers
This happens in a second, only to be later
relived in brooding hours
Meanwhile the day goes on
And I work, husband and father
Poorly, but try I’d rather
For even in my dark retreat
Life beckons in those familiar faces
So I strive to be brave
To face the fear and bear the guilt
To do nothing more than live a life ordinary
