Not Afraid

Poetry By: flavoredair
Poetry


From a quarter-lifer's point of view. Now is the time where we define who we are. Are we ready?


Well, this is a far cry from my usual... but I needed an upper to counter all those downers. (Look mom, I'm well rounded)

Wake up one morning find

Twenty five years behind

Where has the time gone?

Power to cease the day

Make money any way

Don't be ashamed

~

And know you're NOT afraid

~

Fix up your life right now

You should know

Don't ask how

What went wrong?

Make friends everyday

Loose some along the way

Nothing went wrong

~

And know you're NOT afraid

~

Self control one step fine

Any less step behind

Take a chance

Make it on your own

But you don't stand alone

Don't give in

~

And know you're NOT afraid

~

Any fear you feel

Is because of you

No one told you to

You can make it through

All you have to do

Is believe in you

~

And NO you're not afraid
