Let sleeping anxiety lie...

To shuttle between the excitement of hope
and the crash of breaking futures, breeds
anxiety which if, over-cared could overgrow ,to dwarf
all other fruitful thoughts. Anxiety is from you

but not who you really are except the self carries
it as a pony ,load. Anxiety has to be left to itself,
while learning to live with it as we do with storms
or daily loss of opportunities. Anxiety reveals a

contingent mind's climate and as waves rise
and fade away, on its own. By identifying
yourself with anxiety, you tighten its grip and
intensify its resistance. Instead of being a state

of mind that you have, it becomes a compulsion
that has you. The challenge in letting it go, is to act
before habitual reaction, renders you helpless as
a prey of victim thinking.
