Anxious

The alarm clock buzzed
And my heart raced
Immediately anxious about a day
That holds unpleasant challenges

The truest sign of an internal struggle



A war between want and need
Fully aware of what's best for me
At odds with what's best for others

Trying to summon a refreshed attitude
Answered only by a heavy thumping in my chest

Today I Pray...

...for strength
to carry me past adversity

...for light
on the path that I am meant to walk

...for a calming breath
to overcome the anxiety

Breathe In. Breathe Out. Find Peace.

Once again, I'm amazed by how much you communicate, with so few words. What a gift.

As far as the content of what you wrote, I think you are already well on the way to peace because you have acknowledged the unrest and prayed for passage through it. I know God's goodness is surrounding you today.
