Anxiety

The anxiety and powerlessness I felt

was not a part of me,

but something lying beside me,

separate, not integrated into me.

It was out of my control.

A parasite.

It was eating away at me.

I had no power over it,

and could do nothing with it.

I had to first merge it into my body

to have the ability to swallow it up,

and spit it out.
