Worrywart – A Monster Called Anxiety

Stomach-churning
Head throbbing
Sweaty hot then icy cold
Hands shaking
Heart racing
Thoughts intruding
Repeating
Brain rewinding then restarting
Vicious cycle-again and again
Dissecting-Obsessing
About a person place or thing
Stressing out
Now here I am
Perseverating
Picking it apart
Crazy making
Turning it inside out
Then upside down
Repeat and worry some more
Imagining every
Possible
Outcome
Focusing on the worst
Intrusive thoughts repeating
Overwhelming
Irrational thinking
Preoccupation-Perturbation
Unable to stop
This runaway train
Complete
Mental drain
Causing actual physical pain
How ironic
This self-inflicted
Cerebral anguish
Is exhausting
These mental gymnastics
Serve no
Functional purpose
Other than
Feeding a monster
Called ANXIETY
