Gossamer Confidence

The nerves expand, plunder me throughout

Oh why, oh why do I sit here alone?

What the future holds, will my life lead to more?

Butterflies captured, hands shake

Confidence is key, 

isn't that the answer, to shine through

Break unbearable bonds

I should say so.

Here I sit, with my pen unsteady

Waiting for my fate's arrival

The end, determining factor?

The importance prevails, oh these damned knots!

Making twists and crunches, slight blunders

But the control of my hands stay

Appearance of sanity

Confidence dominates
