Anxiety is an Animal

Anxiety is a creature

with a tail of fire

that twitches in anticipation,

feral in it’s rawness,

wild in it’s relentlessness.

It grieves the heart like a predator;

a mammal of heat

yet cold and frozen through with dread.

Anxiety calls

untamed,

forgotten,

hungry to devour the peace of your soul,

it’s fur ruffled

by sincere concern.

It waits.

It waits.

And no man

without prayer

can tame the beast.
