She prays and prays until she falls asleep.

She prays to be brave and not afraid.

She prays to be the light and not the dark.

Her mind wanders and that's when she falls again. 

Down an abyss of her careless thoughts.

Being brave is what she wants, but her legs shake and become numb.

Her eyes look the other way and she expects someone else to step in.

She hates herself for it and tries to find comfort in her prayers. 

Only at night does she get the courage to be brave because that is the only time she is safe.

In the morning she wakes up and becomes afraid.
