No More Am I Afraid

byfungetter©

Sometimes the world seems upside down.
Sometimes it seems all I can do is frown.
But I know that I'm not alone;
I have friends, a family, a house; a home.

I will be okay.
Nothing can stand in my way.
I have found a place to be,
A place where I can be me.

It was like not scratching an itch,
But now that I've found my niche',
I've learned that I'm alright,
Although changed like day to night.

I have found out how to be myself
Is not sit there like a doll upon a shelf.
I have no pity for those I see,
The ones who sneered and laughed at me.

Someday I'll get them back,
But for now I'll stay on this track
Of self-righteousness and gain,
Im sure I've outrun that train,

The train of fear and self-doubt.
But I think I've finally figured myself out.
No more am I afraid of what I cannot see,
No more am I afraid to be just me.
