Around the Corner


Four letter word that doesn’t want to be heard.

Anxiety creeps into the depths of my mind finding cracks to hide.

Four letters keep the anxiety near, for myself, of the world, of the unknown.

Anxiety peaks out around the corner only to determine how life is unfair.

These four letters within fear; fight, earn, appear, and redirect.

Anxiety is drowned by the courage and persistence of will.

Fear is not a four letter word, it is a push a need the want to succeed.

Anxiety will not be controlled by fear it will be won by the four letter word. Love.

Love for yourself, the world, and new beginnings.

Four letters determine setback versus success. Chose to love not to fear.
