Unnecessary Fear

In the shadows of my mind, whispers of fear echo endlessly,
convincing me
that danger lurks around every corner,
that catastrophe is always lurking
I second guess every move, every decision
my mind spinning with worst case scenarios
heart racing, palms sweating
paralyzed by my own imagination
I am unnecessarily paranoid
haunted by irrational fears
trapped in a prison of my own making
unable to break free from its grip
I long for peace, for a moment of clarity
To see the world through clear eyes
to trust in myself, in others
to let go of the fear that binds me
But the whispers persist
the shadows grow darker
and I am left alone
lost in my own paranoia
searching for a way out
a way to silence the voices
and find freedom once more
