There is more to you than this....

a poem by Myrna Martin, USA

You have no idea when the paranoia is in your head...
And the worry won't stop...
And your heart is full of dread...
You want to leave the house..
But you feel safe there instead...
So the world goes by without you...
While your cocooned safely away...
You think you will try tomorrow...
But today is not the day...
You turn the t.v. on loud, to drawn out your worry thoughts...
Jesus, just break this cycle...
Make this connection stop...
This illness other's wont understand...
Sometimes, no compassion in them...
For how can they understand?
When it doesn't happen to them...
So, this daily battle I fight...
This unseen war behind the smile...
I am programmed to say it's all right...
As I continue my daily struggle, just to live my life...
I want you to understand, to know it's okay to take your meds...
Therapy sessions too... It does not make you weak...
Your STRONG, your managing too....
Continue to take each breath, even as the tears fall...
Breath, sweetheart breathe...
There *IS* more to you than this...
There *IS* more to life than dread...

Dedicated to all those who suffer with ANXIETY, PTSD, DEPRESSION, OCD...
THIS IS FOR YOU! With all my love, Myrna xoxoxo
