Coward In Me

Not sure how to start

Or where to begin Will I upset the creature within? All my life, I cowered away

I wanted to fight But the creature stayed


It awoke, I closed my eyes Trying to speak

Words now whispers

With an urge to shout My body a sculpture of stone

Yet I can’t move my bones

All that I feel is a quivering heart

With no idea of self, I fall apart Frustration is not the word

It’s totally absurd Why do I quiver?

Why do I shake?

I’m an 18 stone man - f**ksake!

When the tough gets going

I curl into a ball

Not wanting deal - anymore! Chest is closing, choking inside

Emotions are fearful

Losing my pride

Never standing up

Never feeling right

I’m shutting down The coward leaves me empty inside Wanting to be strong

I want to be tough

Sadly this is something

That I can no longer bluff

I will beat you

I will win one day

I will stand against the coward within

I will someday

You have been here too long

This is my old life’s song

The time has come

For the record to change

No longer will I - accept blame Now standing tall

Words ready to brawl

Today I will have my say.

"I have always felt a little bit different, like I didn’t fit into the environments I was in. Many years passed as I wore a mask to fit into society. About 12 months ago that all changed. I had someone inspire me to look into spirituality. I started reading, meditating amongst others things. I haven’t looked back, I feel I now understand who I am, what I’m about and want to help others do the same".
