Anxiety noun.

a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome.


In thoughts,

In movements,

In the form of doubts about self,

In the form of suspicion on and about others,

Through words,

Spoken and mostly unspoken.

Through actions,

Sometimes done,

Generally, undone.

Almost always there,

Making all and sundry,

Unsure, uncertain.

Only sometimes absent.

When not,

Assured confidence,

And a positive outcome.

  1. What a profound take on the theme of Anxiety. I have been there for long, so I could relate to every word of your poem. Will visit your blog daily for a dose of poetry.


  2. That’s a fabulous start to the A2Z challenge Manali. Having experienced anxiety just a few days back when I had only 2 and a half posts ready for the challenge, I can so well associate with every word you have so wisely penned!
    Look forward to your B to Z posts now!
    Happy A2Z challenge


    1. That means a lot, Anagha. Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope your anxiety is abated now. I’m looking forward to reading your posts so that should motivate you (I hope :D) Happy A2Z to you as well ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Nothing more to add it seems about that scary word. Covid gave it an everyday talk! All the best with the challenge!


  4. Anxiety has been expressed so well in this piece, Manali, that feeling when one is not sure of the outcome. Once we get over this block, we are filled with assurance and confidence.
