I fear no more…
When I stopped trying to force my will onto every situation
When I allowed myself to stop fighting every little thing
I awoke to the natural rhythms of life.
Deep within the nuances of these rhythms
lies the opportunity for the healthy expression of my will
and all manner of creativity
in accordance with my true core values;
rather than the mask I wear to keep you from seeing the very real me.
The one I hide away;
for fear that you would mock or ridicule me
as so many others have done.
When I stopped, and let myself go,
that is when I finally began to grow,
hidden deep and shielded within my shell
loneliness became my personal hell
When I stopped trying to hide who I am;
I finally became able to become who I have always been;
but had allowed to become buried beneath;
all that I had wished to be but was not destined for,
and now as I open the door;
I fear no more.
For I have opened up to life, for better or worse
Has blown silently away in the night
that which was my curse.
And I fear no more. . .
