I'm scared of you and your claws

When in all reality all you have are paws

I cower in fear because you are bigger

But that doesn't mean you are stronger

Inside I am full of fear yet filled with courage

I let you win that battle but you will never win the war

For I am stronger than ever before

One answer does not always solve a problem

It can also make matter worse

So I choose to fight with my words rather than my fists

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

The many things running through my mind

BUt I learned how to deal with it all

Little by little I am healing

The scars fade

I can patch them up myself

I'm all I can rely on

I'm okay with that

I don't need anyone as much as I want them

For I am stronger than ever before

I'm not longer scared of you and your claws

I have some of my own

They are called words

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can break your soul

I intend to use my powers for good

I will not destroy you and you destroyed me, but help build others up that you have along with destroyed

I'm here

I'm not leaving

Take me for what I am

Who I am

Fear is no longer me

For I am courage
