There is a place deep inside

That used to be hard to manage

Where insecurities


And doubting filled my mind


And all about a darkness swirled

That made it hard to see

The glittering lights that surrounded

All about my being


But then one day 

After months of work

It became apparent 

That my anxieties 


And stress weren't worth the battle


So I let them go

And looked away

Because they weren't worth my attention 

For they dragged, hindered and crippled me

Beyond the reach of reason


And when they come and knock again

I just ignore them

Because to keep my sanity

To keep my mind

They aren't worth my time
