Hello anxiety, old buddy, old pal
With intentions to keep me out of harms way
Building those bridges to comfort zones
That I eagerly crossed, back and forth each day.
I’ve taken you places, so many to count
With syncing strides as we’re one of the same
You’re no stranger to me, or demonic force
Yet upon you I’ve laid such hurtful blame.
But blaming you only sets us apart
Like two sides fighting with the strength of one
Was me versus you on bloody fields
Your attacks I would lose but peace was not won.
I don’t ask you to leave and never come back
As my wholeness depends on the lessons you teach
But let us shake hands and soften the battle
And decide it is Love that we both choose to preach.
