This Is Who I Am
by: Beckie Anthony

I am not a child.
I am so afraid.
I don't need a psychotherapist.
I just need someone to talk to, who will listen to me.
I do acknowledge my tormented inner world and I am terrified of what people will think of me, so I draw the trap tighter around myself.
I am trapped in a bind created in my own mind.
I recognize feelings of weakness and anxiety; I just don't know what is causing it.
I can't tell if it's coming from the outside world or my insides.
I hope there is help, but I can't imagine it.
This means experiencing exactly what I want to avoid, letting someone see my real inner life.
I have a secret deep inside that no one knows and I am afraid to let it out.
