Creative Campfire

My struggles and my friends

I daren’t speak the truth that my struggles reveal

I daren’t speak up to say what I feel

I can’t open up or be as I am

For fear that I cannot find someone who will understand

I dream to dare and dare to dream

But those that have instilled fear in me

Fear not what you don’t expect

Fear what could happen if you didn’t accept

That I could be

Be as I had dreamed

But how you will be when I succeed

Bitterness will never be sweet

And I won’t be as quick to accept your jealousy

Quite as quick as you threw your arrows aimed at me

I wish you calmness, love and a heart that is content

But do not pretend that you were ever my friend
