Because of You

My fear is mine

I can’t hide from it

No matter how hard

I try

I’m running

I’m broken

I’m worthless

Until I’m

Not

My fear is mine

But it does not

Define me

I am more

Than I ever thought

Possible

Because I had

You

You made me

Better

I couldn’t hide

From you

You taught me

To be myself

That it was

Fine to be

Myself

And that was all I asked

Not to be afraid of

Who I was

Because of you

Dad

You taught me not to fear

The unknown

Not to care what

Others think

Only know that if it

Was my best

It was my best

Because of you

Dad

I’m stronger than ever

Even now that you’re gone

Because I had you

You made me better

I wasn’t broken

I wasn’t worthless

I was me

And it was my best
