Voices in my head
Noises in my ears
Echoing who I should be
Resounding what I should be
Opinions so loud it drowned my thoughts
The weight of the unknown pressing down
Steady feet seeking for balance
Has it always been this difficult?
Or I just got on its wrong side?
One step forward, three steps backwards
Round and round on the same junction
At the lowest point came the glint of sun
A force greater than me, an anchor
With renewed faith, I saw clearer
Validation, strength and courage
That when heavy steps reached the peak
A voice will scream, I am Alive!
