I’m scared of seeing myself honestly,
for the person I truly am.
Without the props and dressing up,
I really don’t think I can.
That’s not your plan for me today,
you insist I look in the mirror.
The mirror of truth to introspect,
bring the self a little nearer.
Fear in my heart, a shortness of breath,
I just want to stay in bed.
Hide myself, keep eyes shut tight,
each moment filled with dread.
I’ve prayed, begged and cried,
what more can I do so you’ll listen.
Give me more time, let me linger here,
please don’t let me loose my position.
Your pulling me now, there’s no turning back,
then over the edge do I fall.
My wings open up, I’m starting to fly,
all the fear led to nothing at all.
