Afraid No More

Updated on November 7, 2012

Afraid no more

To express true feelings

To open my heart

To let my light shine

To love and be loved.

I once was afraid

Hiding

Trembling

I have given that fear to the universe

To take into the palms of its hands

And spread across galaxies

Only to morph into bright, beautiful stars.

These are the stars I hold in my hand

Stars made of a crippling essence

Turned into majesty and beauty

With one mighty swing

of everlasting arms

Arms that are spread wide

Constantly embracing a creation

That is perfect admist chaos.

I love these arms that hold me.

These arms give me courage

And hold me up so that I can touch the rings of Saturn

A mighty experience

To keep locked in my heart forever

With the knowledge that I am loved.

I hold in my hand stars made from fear

Transformed into love.

Hold out your hands. I will share them with you.

They come from my heart.

Be afraid no more.
