there was a moment

when i decided to save myself.

 

when i thought: enough.

enough pity

enough fear

enough excuses

 

when i realized that being kind to myself

did not mean

following impulses

basing decisions off convenience

 

and there is no love without challenge

no reward without bravery

 

and as i suddenly decided to attack everything that scared me

 

my terror evaporated and melted into the dewy sponge of my past

 

and my phantom fear was just a stain in my memories

 

and I’m soaring.
