Trapped in this same nightmare;
Nowhere to evade my problems;
Time to face my fear;
I can't do it;
Frantic I was;
My feet began to hit the ground and I began to run;
I heard frenetic screams and the sound of feet that were not mine;
I called out to my dead mother,
"Please take me home,I cant do this, I cant be without you, I cant do this on my own"
I called out to her;
But she didn't hear me;
Not because she was dead;
She was very much alive;
But she was dead to me,
Dead to my cries;
Dead to my troubles;
Numb to my pain;
Rain fell from my eyes;
Lightning so thick and strong I felt;
This nightmare was real;
Closer and closer the footsteps came;
Farther and farther I tried to slip into the darkness;
Hoping I could escape knowing that it was no escape;
Nonetheless I tried;
Finally the footsteps stopped;
I closed my eyes;
Scared of what was going to happen next;
Suddenly something yanked me up;
I opened my eyes and looking back at me....
was me;
No longer was I scared;
I was ready;
Someone once said,
"I was ready to take on the whole world"

So msny of us are scared of the future or whats behind the next door we dont take the time to look into the mirror. The future can be no worse than the present unless we make it or do nothing about it either way we got to move forward. I hope you take the chance and live life the fulfilling way and not scared.Look and the mirror and see what i see
