Fear

You linger in my chest

it's getting tight.

You linger in my chest

out of sight.

Distract me from good thoughts,

drown my soul.

Distract me from the good life—

I'm out of control.

But I will crush you,

Can't you see?

I am the only one protecting me.

I crush you in the palm of my hand,

breaking you up into fine sand.

I blow you into the wind—

drift away.

I can breathe now— I'm free

to begin the new day.

Free from your chains, wrapped too tight.

Free from the torture you instill.

You are only an emotion of which I control.

I am the one with free will.
