In my Heart. {Poetry}


Anxiety and depression have been a part of my life for years now.

They have brought me down, paralyzed me and almost killed me.

I wrote this poem when I was recovering and finally finding some inner peace. My hope in sharing it with others is that they see the light at the end of the tunnel. Things can change if we work on them.

If we acknowledge our emotions and accept our weaknesses we will be able to move forward. This poem is about letting go and moving forward. It’s about coming back to life after walking through darkness.


In my heart there is a fear

Subtle and strong

Almost gone.

In my heart there is softness

Inexhaustible & energetic

A magical source.

In my heart there is a flower

That long faded, reborn

Is starting to grow.

A flower that in the light

Of joy, blooms

To overcome darkness.

Opening up its petals

To the grand ball

Of life.

Inhale it ! Yes ! Do it !

Intoxicate yourself with its scent

Sweetness, pleasure, happiness

In your nostrils

At your fingertips.

To help you,

Listen to your true self.



The Intelligence of Anxiety.
