leave behind

Tue, 03/19/2019 - 14:12 -- tarafro

he's a liar.

fear whispers in your ear,

looks over your shoulder,

places his cold hands

around your neck.


"you can't possibly

do it," he says.


of what could happen."


while he hisses insults

and throws anxieties

in your direction,

remember that

You Have A Choice.


turn away from

fear and turn toward



curiousity says

"you can do it, 

only if you try."


while holding

curiousity's hand,

you can

walk further

jump higher

learn more.


and by leaving

fear behind,

you leave behind


and shame

and worry, 

so you can fly.
