Inside an Anxious Mind by Kate Hanford (Poem)

If you have never experienced anxiety or depression you might wonder what it actually feels like. Here, ‘Inside an Anxious Mind’ describes just how it can feel at times.

Inside An Anxious Mind

Hailstones stabbing a window pain

family, money, guilt, and shame

bees swarming, endless drone

colours dark and monochrome

bombs exploding, babies crying

fear of failure, sickness, dying

lightening flashes, here then gone

bringing panic and doubt  upon

     taps dripping, blackboard scratching

cheating, anger, problem thrashing

craving calmness, whimsical themes

oblivion, stillness, peace, and dreams.

Kate Hanford
