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...
to carry me past adversity
on the path that I am meant to walk
...for a calming breath
to overcome the anxiety
Breathe In. Breathe Out. Find Peace.
