Poem: Oh, Anxiety
You kill me
Over and over
With no warning
You show up
With open arms
I''ve got no luck
I see you every day
Wouldn''t mind at all
To simply walk and talk
Without misstep or fall
And forgetting all about you

Anxiety, Anxiety
Where from do you come?
Why can''t we
Ever seem a little smarter than dumb?
Killing my core and my head
Dropping my body as it turns to lead...
