What Am I Afraid Of?
Such a sentence brings me to the thoughts that have haunted me for years.
To be a bird in a place that is made for hunters.
I am surrounded by beings who are afraid to be alone,
I have been this person.
Afraid to bend,
afraid to break.
But my world has changed and as the smoke dances above
sending signals of change,
I realise they are not the same as I.
I am meant to feel different.
I AM different.
I am meant to be.
Some may learn to understand.
I am losing sight of my fears.
I have gained a sense of calm within the chaos that has engulfed the world.
But I am not to worry of such,
as I am not fearful.
I am alive,
breathing breathes filled with thoughtful changes in each moment.
Learning continuously in motion.
I beg you, do not stop.
Do not let fear encapsulate you.
It feeds self doubt and trouble.
Embrace your self,
You are the power for which you so crave.
You are the wisdom for which you so desire.
You are everything you need.
And for these words I write,
I give you the sign that I so craved;
a reminder that all is not lost within,
as long as you find yourself hoping for more.
Be that person you so crave.
Be what you need.
Be what you want.
Be who you are as unapologetically as you can.
Trust that you are enough
and you will find that being yourself,
is all this universe asks of you.
