Today I broke free from your clutches; from your relentless desire to consume my sanity.
I have been a prisoner in my home and in my mind for far too long.
Today I walked out the door,
and I did not look back.
I drove my car.
It was exhilarating.
The windows were down and the bass of the music was soothing to my soul.
I have taken back control.
Oh, you tried to trick me a few times, but I persevered.
There was nothing you could do to stop me today.
It is a sign that your strength is weakening. Your grip is faltering, your power wavering. You won’t have a hold much longer. I can feel the victory rushing through my veins. A taste of the other side. A taste of what is to come.
For I reign over my mind and body. Not you, Anxiety. You are not welcome to do as you wish, you are not welcome to force yourself upon me. Your intimidation will not prevail. I refuse to give in to your mind games; to your feeble attempts to manipulate me.
Today, I overcame your power.
To the victor go the spoils.
