23rd Psalm

I stared fear in the eyes 
and asked it how was its day 
our staring match, lasted
for about five minutes 
and I refused to look away 
I am bigger 
I am not afraid 
I said, as I trembled in my legs 
but I refused to look away 
I wanted to be the one, 
to overcome 
what no one else could 
this is not my first time staring fear in the eyes 
I've tried many once before 
but now I look fear in the eyes 
and watched it cry 
now as I see it breaking down 
I realize it was stupid of me 
to fear such a thing 
I could probably put my hand through it
and see how transparent, it was all along
maybe I was always strong 
maybe I had it in me all this time 
but I was blind. 
I stared fear in the eyes 
and watched it break down and cry 
and as I turned away 
I heard that mirror break.

Our world
