Please take some time to read a very lovely response to Brenda's word prompt 'Anxiety' by John Hansen. So beautifully scribbled! John, you have nailed it.
Here's the link to John's beautiful poem: https://hubpages.com/health/Anxiety-and … ep-Sisters
Thank you so much!
Hello John and Misbah!
Excellent response to the word prompt, anxiety. So very thoughtful and clever to weave a poem, on the basis of a popular fairy tale.
Fairy tales are so appropriate to explain the difference between the good and the bad, the positive and the negative, especially to the children.
Thank you John, for sharing your creativity.
Thank you Misbah for sharing this post.
Loved Jodah's response. It was a very creative response.
As always, a wonderful poem John! I love your creative concept and the message of hope your piece conveys.
John, I enjoyed reading your beautiful poem. I am happy it was not dark. It was beautiful and a ray of hope for the people who are dealing with anxiety and depression. I love the poem and how you compared happiness with stress is outstanding. The quotes you used are super Brilliant!
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful piece of writing with us. A superb response to the word prompt and so quick. Loved it!
Misbah, you were so quick on reading and sharing this article. Thank you so much for your generous words, and I hope others find this worthwhile as well. When I saw the prompt was “anxiety” I really expected that my response would be a dark poem, but fortunately it didn’t turn out that way. Blessings to you also.
You are most welcome, dear friend. I am so glad it wasn't dark. I truly loved it
This was a lovely poem in response to Brenda's prompt, "Anxiety". I like the way your muse worked for this. The analogy of anxiety and depresson being the evil step sisters while happiness emerges from Cinderalla as in the fairy tale is simply awesome. I appreciate your creativity, John.
Thank you, Misbah, for posting this article.
This poem is wonderful, and very clever John. I love the way you approached the prompt from different angles. It is such a good response to Brenda's prompt.
Thank you for posting John's article, Misbah. Blessings.
Your muse was certainly working regarding the word prompt of "anxiety," and came out accentuating the positive...just like the Cinderella story. Thanks, Misbah, for sharing John's work with us. For all those who celebrate Thanksgiving, have a happy one!
I haven't read this one yet, but I will.
Busy with Thanksgiving at the moment, but I'll post the link in the word prompt article.
Thank you Misbah for posting this one.
It's always a pleasure. Thank you so much everyone for starting this discussion.
Blessings to all!!
I am suffering from anxiety. And every line of your poem is a truth that we can't deny. Anxiety definitely steals our laughter, and we prefer to live alone. It also steals our self-confidence. We can't make good and sensible decisions for ourselves. It leads us toward a world of fears. In fact, fear and anxiety are interrelated—fear can cause anxiety, and anxiety can cause fear.
Moondot, I am glad you can relate to the words of my poem, but not that you are suffering anxiety. You are right that anxiety and fear are interrelated. I have family members who suffer both anxiety and depression so it does affect me also. Thank you for reading.
In your article you tell us Anxiety is the mind and body's reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations.
Then you show us the signs and symptoms of a person who has an anxiety disorder & tell us it can be debilitating to a point where they no longer leave their house and often feel depressed.
In your poem, "Anxiety and Depression ~ the Evil Step-Sisters" you use your words to create a cute poem that helps us to understand how anxiety & depression can take over someone's life, but
happiness can win by defeating both of them.
I love how you use anxiety & depression as two evil step sisters and happiness is like Cinderella with the glass slipper.
You've tackled this one quite well. Great write.
I posted the link in the article earlier today.
This is really a well conceived composition. Well done, John. Thanks Misbah for sharing.
A great response to Brenda's word prompt John. It is a wonderful poem. So true anxiety and depression are like the evil twin sisters in Cinderella. A great comparison. I enjoyed reading your poem. Thanks Misbah for sharing.
This is certainly a great write, John. I loved it from beginning to end. It is informative and inspiring.
I especially liked the analogy of Cinderella's sisters with anxiety and depression. It is quite catchy and successfully conveys the message of recognizing and handling the two evils.
Thanks for sharing your unique wisdom with all of us.
Thanks, Misbah for posting and initiating this discussion.
Have a great time !!

Brenda has written some deep musings here, which are pretty thought-provoking. Also, she shares an exciting word prompt, "Purpose," which can be interpreted and dissected in diverse ways. Thanks, Brenda, for giving another stimulation for the "little grey cells," as Hercule...
