I’m not afraid to die…

But I never knew…

I was afraid to live…

Afraid of love…

Every action and choice I made…

Was out of my own fears…

To stay in a place of slow eventual death…

Self destructive in a romantic way…

But I never knew…

It would all change when I found something to live for…

And I always thought it would be someone…

But I could never fathom that someone would be me…

To fight for my own life…

To cherish it…

To hold it close…

In loving arms…

Washing away all shame…

Wrapping myself in the protection of the faith I have…

In myself…

To live and love…

Once again.
