Fear lurks in the corners
Of my heart and my mind.
Fear drugs me and numbs me,
Fear puts me to sleep.

Fear lies to me laughing
As I blindly believe it,
As I burry my sorrows
In the depth of my heart.

Fear stops me from loving,
Fear stops me from living,
It fills me with dread,
Paranoia, self-hate.

It paints a picture
Of a dark, cruel future.
It laughs and it tells me
That there is no God.

It tells me that I am
Its prisoner forever,
That there is no hope,
That there is no escape.

It burries my passion
In tears and heart aches.
It declares its victory
Over my love.

Now I finally get it
And I get really angry –
My heart beating loud,
Rage boiling my blood.

I rise up in rebellion
And I stare at it screaming:
“No, I will not let you!
No, You won’t take my love!”

Its eyes pierce me with thunder,
Making me tremble
As I punch it with vengeance
Staring straight in its eye.

Then a miracle happens
As I take back my power.
Fear turns into ashes,
Just a pile of dust.

And I see the sun rising,
And I hear God’s whisper:
“This was all an illusion.
You were born to be free.”
