And just for thought...
It is the hardest thing to stand up to that which I fear,
to move beyond all that holds me back.
I have yet to move forward despite the steps walked.
I have only just worked my way around this elephant.
I cannot say certain words.
I still flinch from a touch.
I do not allow myself to trust even the purest of intentions,
believe all that falls from the sky,
understand all that hides under rocks.
All I want is peace; to not factor the pain that resounds in my life.
It haunts me, this fear.
I have a choice; run or hide.
If I stay, it will eat me alive.
If I go, it will only follow.
In the end, this fear will have the best of me.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
