Scared

by Zam Zhinga

 

Can you tell me why?

Terrified of busting through

Being the great one I am destined to be

We believe the lie before the truth

The enemy is one that we root

Champion the darkness over the light

I’m scared of me

Scared of the potential

To Rise

To soar.

Afraid to open…

Afraid to let people in

Afraid to be the realest me

I can be

Shatter the mirrors

Bled from the shards

Bandaged my own wombs

Pressed on

Still afraid of what was around that corner.

 

If not now then when?

Tell me why?

So terrified.

Illuminate.

The light makes it hard to run from yourself.

Turn the lamp on.

What are you looking for

Ruffling through that old drawer

The poems are gone.

Only left in you mind.

Recreate and rebuild.

Freedom taken

Steps shackled…

I tripped and fell back at the starting point.

Dust in my eyes

Angst boiling over

Scared of beautiful

Fascinated with the ugliness of the lie

Cry

Go cry

Be scared…but keep going

Break down the walls and paint outside the lines

Grapple with your own truths and rise..

Darkness comes before the light…

Daylight shines before night……

A little something that came to mind…I may add to this later…. But Brandy’s ‘Scare of Beautiful’ inspired this memory…and this is what came out! Happy Birthday BRANDY!!
