POEM: Stressed Out Heart

I felt not-so-cool yesterday (and I didn't want to blog rubbish). So I wrote this poem as a great relief. I do hope this helps you out of depression, anxiety, and all other forms of worry too.

Stressed Out Heart


All words are in cluster
Even pictures are blurry
I can't pin them in
I need to gather my thoughts
But there is a blockage
Which power is behind this?

This doesn't look familiar 
Everything seems inane
Time is wasted. People stay away
I know I have a choice
To let this fade away
But how do I do this?

This is unfitting
It's like a hole, dark and lonely
A feeling out of space
My heart screams here
I want to. . . come out!
Can you hear me?

Wait, I hear footsteps
Someone must have heard me
And might be coming to get me
Slowly, very slowly, I breathe
I should be still and quiet now

This is the moment
When I hear His voice
"Come. Come to me."
"I'll speak peace to your heart's storm"
For in me, you'll find what you long for
 
Oh, I know He is right here
So close
I can sleep now.

I'm glad it was helpful. This stress is a signal for a change. We can only be better.

I loveeee your blog! It So different. You write poems when you stressed out. That's cool. For me, I get angry unnecessarily and stay away from people. Stress is bad

Hi Serial. Great to have you here. Welcome to Hear Rays! *rings a bell* Well, I do write poems to express an emotion. Each line tells a feeling. For example, the first stanza illustrates how stress creates chaos in your thoughts and visions. But you can always choose to stay calm within (4th stanza).
I can relate with what you said about staying away from people. I value some time alone with myself too. It helps me to relax and recharge.
I believe that no matter what happens on the outside, we can learn to have our inner light radiate peace, joy and love.

Thanks for coming around, Serial.

Oh, I'm glad this brightens your heart too. When your heart feels dark, gloomy
and overwhelmed, just relax. Be still and know God is right beside you.
