state of confusion
These changes will fall into place,
If they are destined to be,
But I also am acutely aware,
That fear is the enemy.
These labors, this sheer leap of faith,
To ensure future survival,
This may not make sense to you,
But fear is my only rival.
The one that said she was my friend,
Thinks Iíve surely lost my mind,
Sheís made it very clear,
Her daughter canít play with mine.
That I would give all ďthisĒ up
Is beyond her comprehension,
Sheís afraid I might be right,
which just adds to the tension.
The children donít understand
They just want to play together,
Sometimes grownups are idiots,
You think they would know better.
Amidst all this, add to this mix
The most unexpected of gifts,
The prospect of you in my life,
Oh, now the level of fear shifts.
Life is a teacher of lessons,
For me itís patience and strength,
To wait for life to come to me,
And keep fear at armís length.
What better time to trash fear,
this factor keeps us off track,
Just let everything come what may,
and just never, ever look back.
