I want to say thank you for always being there.
The fear of you keeps pushing me forward.
And even though I’ve fallen into your opens arms before,
I never stay for too long.
You disguise yourself as an easy path,
A warm fire to sit next to while I rest,
But I think I’ll rest when I’ve passed you.
You claw at my heels and try to defy my strength.
Sometimes you catch me.
I can’t stop though,
Can’t pause even when I escape your alluring smile.
If I do, you’ll win.
And everything I have fought for will be lost.
I won’t let that happen.
But I thank you for the threats,
They keep me company when I am alone.
