I love to write
TRAP BY FEAR
TRAP BY FEAR.
I heard you knocking at my door of life,
but I was too afraid to get up, to let you in I am too afraid of the unknown and the unseen
I am so afraid of what you will be coming in with
You waited patiently for me as usual at the door,
to see if this time I would get up and open the door,
I walk toward the door, I didn't have the courage or the strength to turn the door nob,
I have been a victim of fear and hopeless taught for so long
Eventually, I heard your footsteps fading away I am alone again grips by fear; I must get up and go where?
I must get out and go where?
Why didn’t I respond when the light was knocking at my door?
Why didn’t I take the help when it was offering to me?
I am always overthinking everything, allowing my taught to carried me away
I am unlocking the door and taking steps forward, so when the light comes back, I will be closer to the door.
What if the light never comes back? or what if I got lost following the light?
I must start living my life and dream again, I have been oppressed by fear for too long, walking toward the window inviting the light to fill my life and my mind, goodbye to the fog in my head and hello to the light in my eyes again.
