Keep up with my Friday tradition of RHYME TIME!
One, two, three, four; I hear a knocking at the door.
I close my eyes; breathe in, breath out;
For I know what’s lurking all about.
Just beyond the dark still night;
An anxious thought hides out of sight.
It waits for when my guard is down;
Then sneaks behind without a sound.
No warning bells before it strikes;
It gives me choice to fight or flight.
Ah ha, but wait — I’ve come prepared;
An anxious thought won’t leave me scared.
Be gone now for I’ve got no use;
For worry’s relentless emotional abuse.
Take cover fear, for I’ve grown strong;
You’ve reigned this land for far too long.
It’s time for peace; it’s time for calm;
Here this now, my warrior song.
