For all the times I wanted to run away but I didn’t

On the stage. Terrified. Mind going blank, tears welling up.

Yet the smile stays on. And with every magic step out of the comfort zone

the heartbeat returns to normal. The shiver ceases. The music starts

and here I am. I am shining so bright, I could light up a city.

 

Out of the rough, confusing circles of childhood, I finally grew. I stopped being seventeen

I became a person I always wanted to be. A little less scared, a little more outspoken.

Sometimes bent but never broken.

 

My doodles turn into fine lines. My tears become the sea I comfortably swim in. My fears exist, I know them and I dive head first into them. The way I was always meant to.

 

For all the times I wanted to run away to a safe haven,

but instead, on and on I flew.
