The Antidote

sifting through a

line of emotions

as they spiral in

different directions

I brace my heart

to not embrace the

lies that torment

and corrupt my mind

prayer becomes my

only support system

where my mental symptoms

dissolve with scriptures

God's truth reminds me

that fear and anxiety

has no power to control

or take hold of my existence

the white noise evaporates

my mind at ease in His presence

a crashing wave of grace covers me

His breath of life restores my spirit
