Courage…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about courage for her book Martha.  Cheers!

I felt terror!
It pressed my head into my pillow!
I struggled to lay still.
I struggled to stay calm.
But it was all in my mind.
I read a book.
A romance.
It talked of voices.
And people believing in them.
I thought that’s what I do!
Could the voices not be real?
Are they all in my mind?
With courage I checked.
With courage I stopped listening.
With courage I dared!
It is all in my mind!
But still I fear.
Now it’s everyday things.
But the fear is less.
With courage slowly I heal!

I am a Canadian writer, artist and a biologist who suffers from anxiety. I have two blogs. In the first blog I discuss anxiety and also post my art. In the second blog I use my writing pseudonym and post poems, talk of writing, give book reviews and talk of the books that I am writing. I also draw unique nature designs and dog portraits with pastels, watercolor and graphite. I sell my original drawings and paintings, and prints of my paintings.
