Facing my fears

As I looked within

And internally I find

The faces of fears

Growling at me

Just like a bunch of dogs

Or wolves

Teeth showing and salivating

I attempted to stand up strong

With my legs feeling weak

I tried to turn and run

But was held back by an inner voice

It was telling me

Fight on or be beaten

For there’s no third choice

I struggled to look for strengths

I struggled to look for what’s right

And I struggled to turn excuses into reasons

Till one day I realised

There is no excuse for me

There are only reasons

Fears began to take a step back

Faith became stronger

Yet deep within the heart

The inner child cried for security

I put my hand on my heart

Giving love to myself

And comfort myself with facts of life

That all I am looking for is just

Happiness

Fears have nowhere to hide

Just like darkness

Cannot find a hiding place

Where light is found

But I know that they are somewhere

In the shadows

In the dark corners

Waiting for the chance

To pounce on me again

I am comforted

But how Long can it last

I do not know

I asked myself

What is it that I want

Fight for it and accept what comes may

For I’m the only one responsible

For my own happiness

Just like nobody else’s happiness

Will lie in my hands…

    清明,不掙扎,就過了~ ^^
