Scared To Fly

More by this author
The time has come
I'm all alone
Out of my cocoon
What's done is done
No going back
Regretting it so soon

But now it's time
To spread my wings
And finally fly away
Take risks and shine
And if I'm brave
My journey starts today

But I'm too scared
I'm holding on
And never letting go
For what we've shared
Is just too strong
I have to let you know

My mind is spinning
Getting weak
I can't fight it much longer
I feel it winning
And I know
It will keep growing stronger

My fear to you
Will sound bizzare
Estranged and unfamilliar
All we've been through
Memories made
Different but somehow similar

I'm afraid
That all we have
Will be torn away
Cried and prayed
For so long
So much more to say

I love the way
We used to be
And what we have become
The things you say
And make me feel
As two turned into one

But life's unfair
As we both know
It will try to destroy us
Just know I care
Always will
And in all this I trust

I know it's stupid
But I feel
It's too good to be true
Was hit by Cupid
Fell in love
And now my prize is you

And even though
I'm scared inside
I know one thing for sure
Have to let go
Take a risk
Flying is my cure

You can never let better opportunities come thru if you never get life a chance. When one door closes, it means a better one will open and that's always how it's meant to be.

I really enjoyed your poem...better yet I loved it.

Maybe because it was so pure -& it was kind of like a nursey rhyme in a way.

But keep writing and gathering fans!
