The fear that rocked me to my core
was also the fear that tied me to my place
here on earth
in this moment
at this time.
it felt like sadness
like embarrassment for being who I am
for being able to walk with strength
for having my own dreams
for chasing them down, and becoming who I want to be.
I am a shy girl.
I am afraid to speak my mind.
I am afraid to let others see.
I am afraid to share myself.
I am afraid of everything.
