This war is long
Never will it end
I cannot think straight
My brain a winding bend

Each battle gets tougher
I must fight stronger each time
Satan's breathe on my neck
His words willingly unkind

I cannot faint, I cannot fall
I must hold my head up high
No longer will my heart be free
I must wave it all goodbye

This acceptance tears me up
It crushes soul and heart
But I must keep it all together
I must never fall apart

Those with anxiety remember
You are never the only one
Surrounding you are people
There for support and love

The author's comments:
When I was in 8th grade I developed an anxiety disorder that literally tore my my life apart. I've recovered from it and I like to reflect back on it and realize how strong I was for getting through it.
