A Poem- Peace Within A Dream

Can You Find A Place Where There Is Silence and Peace?

Escape from A Reality to Find Peace within a Dream

There is no panic-no reason to hide

Lost in a dream
Finally at peace
Tomorrow is of no importance
When I am sound asleep

There is no panic
No reason to hide
This is an illusion
A place where I can say who, what, when, or why

The world is not frantic
I can breathe with such ease
Life can sometimes seem more like a nightmare
My peace is within my dreams

I love to escape to this other place
And live within my head
This is the place I find myself
And can see what is up ahead

Wake up in the morning
The mornings come too soon
I wish I woke up differently
With a little more breathing room

Remind myself not to panic Remind myself it’s okay
Tell myself to focus
and I will survive the world today

Wipe the sleep from my eyes
Try to focus on the light
I am calm within my soul
For my dreams comfort me through the night

I Remind Myself Not to Panic

Have you ever felt like you have lost control of everything that surrounds you? All of a sudden, you are in a panic, you can not breathe, focus or function.Everyday feels like it is caving in on you and you have no clue as to what you should do to just cope and get through it. How do I know these type of feelings? I know them because I have felt them. Many times I have felt overwhelmed by the world and needed to disappear to re-enter whole again.

I always felt like I was one more life circumstance away from a complete and total melt down. I never had one, but at times it felt like I was holding onto sanity and reality by a shoe string. I still fight with these feelings from time to time, and have taken medication to calm my nerves. I always find myself reminding myself; it is okay- you have been here before and you are okay, this will pass, these feelings will pass.

I learned how to escape by sleeping, but had to make sure that I knew I needed to get back up in the morning, so I would not sleep away my life. Since I know I can not self medicate, I know that I need to use what I can to regain and keep my focus on my life. This is in-part why I write. I find my peace and my focus within the collection of words I use to produce poetry and articles which reflect me as a person. Most, the world will never read the majority of my collection, but a select few of my reflections have managed to make it onto Hub Pages and are now apart of the World Wide Web of information.

Panic disorders and social disorders are a real disease. If you are suffering now, find your peace and look into seaking help to get you refocused on what your life can offer to the world. Do not hide behind closed doors, and do not sleep away life. The world wants you around to discover who you are and what you can offer to others.

This poem is a poem about escape and the release of self doubt to end constant daily panic. It is okay to fall apart from time to time, it is okay to need to escape, it is even okay to panic, as long as you have a plan to regain control and help cure yourself of what it is you are fearing. I hope you enjoyed reading and thank you for stopping by and visiting one of my Hubs.

Do what you need to maintain your sanity. These disorders are disruptive, but I'm glad you can still keep in touch through your hubs.

A.A. Zavala- thank you for reading and for your comment. The most horrible thing about Panic/Anxiety/Social disorders is that most people do not understand, and worse off- they do not care to. The lack of understanding in itself, causes much more intense reactions than if we knew that others cared enough to try and give an ounce of empathy.

Oddly enough, physical activity can release panic. I think that's why people who are tense jiggle their feet, or constantly move their hands, or pace. A really good fix for non-specific anxiety is...DANCING! It works if you can find a place and time to do it.

H.C. Wow , I am this poem, I too have lived a long time with anxiety and depression. Although finally its mostly under control now. Panic attacks and anxiety even before I knew what they were! Never be afraid to find your peace no matter what its doing or how guilty you feel about taking time for YOU! ....when you need it! :-}

ahorseback- i think that anxiety attacks as well as depression are only understood by the ones that experience it. Others may be compassionate for the condition, but actually knowing the paralyzing feelings is another story. I am glad that you liked the poem, and thanks for sharing within your comment :)

Dreams may be peaceful if you sleep calmly. For the past few years, I have been living with anxiety and I'm recovering greatly from depression. For me, to step out of those two things, realize the dreams keep you calm and make them a reality :) That is what the poem spoke to me. Great job!
