Crossroads Scribbles and bits 50

“When we fall down

We learn something”

So why are we always afraid?

To try something new,

If we don’t even try,

How are we going to ever know,

What we are capable of doing?


I used to be afraid

To try new things,

To put myself out there and

Try something new.


I would be too afraid

To fail,

To be rejected

To not be enough.


One day I came to a crossroads

I had to decide

Whether I would continue regretting my life

Or if I should finally take a chance on myself.


I didn’t want to look back and say I wish,

Say if only I would have, anymore.

I wanted to live life,

I wanted to stand up to my fear

So that I could be proud that I have chosen to live.


I took a breath,

Took one final look at the paths I could take

And took my first step down the road of unknown

Leaving the comfort

And the security of the norm

So that I can

Find my strength. 

I want to find my worth

Moreover, accomplish my goals.


I leave fear behind me,

It was never really a friend anyway.

I reach for the star

Never questioning whether I will fail.

I know I can do it

So that I am more likely to succeed.


When fear tries to take over,

When I just do not think I can go on anymore

I will step back,

Take a breath

So that I can carry on.


When I fall down,

I will get back up,

And run,

Sprint, fly until I feel free once again.


I will not stay on the ground,

Crying in defeat,

I will not give up,

I will keep trying,

I will learn from my mistakes,

I will continue to grow,

I will bloom until the beautiful flower

That inspires the world to be better,

To brighter than the sun,

Instead of dull and cruel.

    The fear, I think is truly the devil that tries to prevent the soaring that is possible.
