Confidence

Confidence has never been my strong suit.
It has always been my downfall.
I have always been afraid I would be given the boot,
So much so I could not stand tall.

Fear is what kept me rooted to one spot,
Kept me rooted there for too long.
It’s funny how one single thought
Can turn a song to be so wrong.

My tune lists the highs and the lows,
And captured the highlights and the tears,
Even when I suffered through pushing blows,
My feet kept me rooted here.

It took me some time to realize
That all this time I have being standing stock still,
It took me a while to stop the cries
And let myself go with life’s thrill.

Life is multidimensional and filled with rainbows,
Not made for a constant gloom of gray,
I actually had to open my eyes to see the red rose
Swaying gently in the middle of the fray.

I still flinch from prying eyes,
I still think and worry for far too much time,
But now I work to win the prize
Because I am still in my prime.

Confidence has never been my strong suit.
It has always been my downfall.
But now I find serenity in life, even if given the boot,
I still slouch at times, but, usually, I stand tall.
