Anxiety poem

Why am I so anxious?
I really do not know.
I know my thoughts are irrational, 
but that doesn't make them go!
I try so hard to reason
With the voices in my head
But the voices overpower me,
So I listen to them instead...
I know I shouldn't worry
I know I shouldn't care.. 
I shouldn't over think things
Look for problems that aren't there.
And yet I can not fight it
This feeling deep inside
The anguish that I'm feeling
Is something I can't hide.....
The more I try to fight it
The more it grows and grows
How do I make it go away?!
Goodness only knows!!
