Wondering why, wondering what if - A trap craftily concealed - Ensnares the unsuspecting. To the weak and wounded it appeals. Undetected by its captive, The entanglement’s hold is fast. Each doubt, each fear, each question Only tightens its greedy grasp. Struggling now, fighting for air, The trap becomes apparent. Is it too late to escape The damaging thoughts inherent? Silencing lies, silencing the fears - The only way to break free - Shedding all misconceptions Until I’m left with only me. The me who can learn from my failures The me who can laugh at my fears The me who can see the beauty In my scars, in my pain, in my tears. The me who must stop wondering why Who must smile and simply move on Holding tight to all I’ve learned, Believing it will make me strong!
