I Don’t Have Anxiety, I Just Worry all the Time. {Poem}

Denial—a poem about anxiety.

I don’t have anxiety,

I just worry all the time,

But if anyone asks, yes…

I’m completely fine

I don’t have anxiety

I just tend to overthink

I can stare at my walls for hours

Then when I realise, I feel my heart sink

I don’t have anxiety

I just like to know in advance,

Who, where, when, and how long for?

To give myself a fighting chance

I don’t have anxiety

I just sometimes forget to breathe,

And panicking in public

Is definitely my pet peeve

I don’t have anxiety

I just can’t always sit still,

And when it comes to motivation

I really can’t find the will

I don’t have anxiety

I just avoid people every now and again,

When it gets too much, sometimes,

I just want to be alone with a notebook and pen

I don’t have anxiety

I just worry all the time,

But if anyone asks, yes…

I’m completely fine!
