The Letter

My children
The truth is I’m afraid
Terrified
Of the possibilities
The unknown
Change
But for you I’m courageous
Outgoing
A conqueror
A go getter
I make life alive
Go on adventures
Laugh and play
All for y’all

My children
I’m afraid
Life has proven to be a scary place
Dangerous
Where strength is celebrated
The weak trampled
Not so unlike the animal kingdom
But I go on
I push forward
Even when I fail

My children
My greatest creation
My family
My life
My love
Be afraid
Be terrified
Quake in your boots
But live
Fail
But fly
It’s ok
Because it’s all starts with a try
