Eyes wide open for the departure into the foggy night,
I used to wonder if anyone else feared watching things take flight.
For the first time, hands aren’t shaking, heart is steady.
Peace you left with me, and that’s why I am now ready.
I wasted years on fears through which the world I was reliant.
And it left my heart and soul in a churning very violent.
If I should be clothed in dignity and strength,
I should be able to open my eyes as I leave this place,
Embarking onto another journey smiling at the future ahead,
No more hiding in anxiety but holding fast to you instead.
In the 12 months behind me, I left my doubts and fears.
As I enter into undeniable faith with this brand new year.
