Beat Anxiety

Let your voice break the sound barriers,
or shake like an earthquake,
or croak like a frog
So what?

Say what’s eating you alive, anyway. Sound silly
in front of many faces, ask those questions resting
uncomfortably on your mind like an unpleasant aftertaste,
don’t swallow your words; they’ll keep you up
at night as they’ve done every time you withdraw
your courage from the table

Today was the day you intended to come out
of your comfort zone. Soon you’ll learn to stand firm if
you follow through on your promises.
Kick fear over the ledge.
The undiscovered champion inside you awaits.
