Safe And Sound

Why does my mind push me over each time? When I am walking on a steady path 

The water comes in too fast 

The past enters my mind

Causing pain deep inside

I have to remind myself that I am free 

I am safe 

I am going to be ok 

I don’t have to fear life 
But when my mind is in ‘flight’ or ‘fight’

Everything around me seems to be a threat 

Every footstep is a fear 

Every individual is dangerous whether I know them or not 
I have got to breathe and continue to fight to be free 

However much the memories scar my brain 
I must fight through the pain 

I will continue to look forward to each day 

I will leave yesterday behind and continue to fight with all of my might 

I will hold on tight and everything will be alright
