Being brave…

Doesn’t mean you don’t feel fear….

And being brave…

Doesn’t mean you are free from the tears…

Looked into his eyes that fateful night….

And saw…

A blackness I could never forget….

What he did wasn’t right….

What is darkness…

What is light…

It was a coldness…

A pure indifference to another’s suffering….

Blackness one could slip…

And fall forever into…

When I closed my eyes back then…

My panic…

Was always linked back to you…

To you…

But I am more than what…

I’ve been through…

I may fall….

I may stumble…

I may break…

But…

From every step…

Every choice….

Every lesson….

Every mistake….

I grow to love my inner child a little more….

Shattered memories….

Pain in the deepest cores….

Still standing….

After so many years….

The difference now….

I’m the one…

Wiping away my own tears….
