The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

The Daily Prompt – March 18th – Anxiety


1. Use the prompt in the way it’s intended (starting a sentence, the title of the piece, theme, etc)

2. You may write in any format you see fit (fiction, non-fiction, poem, song, script, etc.)

3. Post your piece of writing in the comments section of the website to be considered for the ‘Best Of’ section.

The Prompt:

You are standing in front of a door, behind which looms a harrowing task, one which will change your life – for good or bad, depending on how it is handled. Convince yourself to open the door.

    I have to admit I am kinda disappointed that noone has commented on this post. I suffer from severe anxiety and I have panic attacks. I was hoping to perhaps get some pointers with which I could direct the conversation I have with myself when making even the smallest of choices. Those who don’t have a problem making decisions have no idea how daunting it can be.
