Dealing with Disorders

Anxiety Disorders
by JD DeHart

One has begun to strum
his fingertips like an instrument,
another meticulously plucks
her eyebrows when stressed,
and still another clucks his tongue
like a chicken.
We do not hear the slight rattle
of teeth grinding together
in the front row, but it is just another
strategy for soothing, for dealing
with the loud noises of life.

I am a dreamer, as well as a doer, who lives in the North Georgia mountains. I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.
