This is one of my most recent poems I've written after taking a long break from writing these past few years after I let motherhood swallow me whole. I recently got back into writing to try to ease
the dark feelings I've been having after some hard times.

Anxious Yet Happy

By Kayla M. Christiansen-Tripp

Some doors close unexpectedly,

Some doors close forcefully.

But is it necessary to leave a window cracked?

Or will the cold air be too harmful?

My brain says that these windows should stay shut.

But my heart is confused and torn.

Family has always been my most treasured priority.

But some family ends up being strangers.

Toxic strangers.

Should I have kept a window cracked?

No, the cold air would hurt too much.

I’m anxious yet hopeful.

Anxious to keep this door shut and bolted.

Yet, hopeful that a new door has opened.

I’ve got all of the family I need here.

The past was rocky but a positive future is near.
