Following the path I've set
I wade into waters unknown.
Fear drowns my body,
impairs my judgement.
Dry land finds me,
alone and weak.
It welcomes me,
brings back memories
of when I was happy.
Tells me everything's going to be fine.
I try my hardest to believe
those sweetly whispered promises.
But, I've heard them all before.
I refuse to be let down once more.
Once again, fear overpowers me,
forces me to stray from the path I've set.
Will I overcome this distraction?
