The storm in me Photo of dark, cloudy sky, with patches and streaks of light bursting forth over housing estate and green fields

The storm in me © Michelle Sherlock

Nerves clang

Pulling tight




Anxiety spirals

Steel bands encircle

Pressing in

Shoulders rise

Drawing closer

Neck aches

Pain spikes

Travels further

Stomach churning

Spirit yearning

To run away

Instead of rising

To face the day

Shaking free

Declaring aloud

“Peace be still

You’re not alone”
