NO FEAR

Tammera

Sacramento, United States

Artist's Description

Cast into this forest
Of weeds and thorns and thickets
To find my broken wing
And no one there to fix it

Their bruises and their jeers
Placed upon my guileless skin
Released for a moment
From all the shame within

Never steady ground
For me to walk upon
Dodging every bullet
Because I was their pawn

I came to know this forest
And soon was not affraid
To make my own life’s path
Tho the edges reamain frayed

I walk now in wonder
And shake my silly head
Whenever I’m come over
By my past of fear and dread

I see it as mere shadows
Phantoms and harmless ghosts
As I seat myself to dine now
In my forest, where I play host

So come into my forest
Bring no harm or dread
Remember I am host
And this to you I said….

You lost your hold and power
I am no more affraid
You can no longer hurt me
My scars now keep me safe

I escaped your fearful prison
From whence you held me bound
And now I have no fear of you
What a treasure I have found!
