▶ROCK, PAPER, SHEARS◀
The air is becoming unbreathable,
My thoughts getting unconstructible.
Ambitions slipping into bleakness,
Every plan I had getting pushed into darkness.
What if this light goes dim?
Not enough fuel it seem.
What if I end up average?
And can hold nothing as leverage.
Night after night, I lay awake,
Determined to put everything at stake.
I don't want to be held up by my fear,
Yet it could be a catalyst to the flare.
A man I have watched myself become.
Sailing through every wave and storm.
If only I could leap with faith,
I won't slip into a worried state.
Folks gave me the necessary foundation;
Education, ethics and mandatory adoration,
So I could make magic or pull a stunt,
And erect the structure I want.
In the end, fear is an ingredient,
At making sunshine with ambience.
If I had realized this earlier,
My journey would have gone further.
