You start a deep breath but suspend it in midair

A voice inside your head tells you to beware

Things are all right for now, but the balance is delicate

A gust of wind can upset the orderly state

You go through a mental checklist again

Stay in control, do not relax the rein

You must dot every i and cross every t,

Your world is perched precariously

On the edge of a cliff- you live in constant fear

You feel like you are hanging on to life dear..

There are times when you are tempted to

Just let things be, not let them bother you

But if you let go, things unravel rapidly

Next you are on an accelerating spiral of anxiety

Down the rabbit hole of what-ifs you go

Imagining every worst-case scenario..


After letting your imagination run wild you return

To reality to take stock of the actual situation

Everything is fine, you breathe a sigh of relief

Your anxiety recedes, albeit for a period brief
