Scared out of my mind, I'm about to shout

But fear stops me from giving out my hideout

Will they go away? I doubt

To survival I'm devout, This time I won't copout


People never thought I was capable

But i'll show and prove them wrong

This time I won't tremble

I'll demonstrate the capacity I've hidden all along


I'll now walk with my head up high

I'll convert my phobia into ally

I won't be shy to fly into the sky

I'll spread my wings and defy

My boundaries, my cage, I'll assuage

I'll now turn the page

And skip to the next chapter of my life

Nothing will prevent me from strife



The Brave

Is what I'll resemble

Dread won't make me a knave

Fear is all mental.
