Anxiety

Often the outcome seems insecure

And then the mind runs riot

We try to manage the quivering feeling

Finding it impossible to sit still

How can we find a way to calm the mind

Leaving the anxious thoughts behind

Focus on the breath

Feel into the gorgeous depth

Of the approaching dusk

Seeing the fading sky

Tinged with light

At times like these

It often feels

That the whole world

Around me

Is unravelling

Seeking my solid ground

I touch the things God gave to us

I prepare a meal and try to remember

I did my best

Even though lately it seems

I made such a terrible mess

Of everything.
