I Am Not Afraid

There were times
Where my tears were terrifying
The thoughts of losing love
Felt worse than death
Not that it was exaggerated
But heart had it reasons
Fear superceded all hope
Until I realized it’s matter of time

When doors close on me
I am not afraid to look
For that window of better life
Piece of that heaven on earth
Even though it is never perfect
To push myself to give my best
Despite knowing I might fall
Because getting up matters

When inner demons try hard
I am not afraid to try
Mustering all the positivity
And shut down those roads
That lead to nowhere
While making my own path
Creating those tiny miracles
Each and every single day

When there are cries for help
I am not afraid to give
Even thought I might have little
It makes a difference to help
Giving, then becomes a virtue
Like an old habit that’s engrained
Nothing is more gratifying
Knowing I’ve made an impact
