I Am Not Afraid

Folder: 
Young Daze

I am not afraid

to become who I ought

to travel through my youth

& teach what I've been taught

 

I am not afraid

to grow wisdom in my eyes

experience in my hair

knowledge in my skin

& greatness in my smile

I am not afraid

 

I am not afraid

to bear what's been born

to save what's been scorn

to love any shape, or

any form

 

I am not afraid

to accept what's been done,

to acknowledge what's be won

or renew what's begun

I am not afraid

 

I am not afraid

to thank the unreachable

to forgive the unthinkable

or teach the unfathomable

 

I am not afraid

to try and then fail

to be defeated, then prevail

to see the beauty in becoming frail

or forget the times i knew so well

 

I am not afraid

Author's Notes/Comments: 

An old poem I wrote back in '05. Seems like I wrote more meaningfully back then.
