When the tides of life turn against you and the current upsets your boat, don't waste time and tears on what might have been, just lie on your back and float.

I'm affraid of the future
whatever it may hold
I'm affraid of competition
For I've never held the gold
I'm affriad of talking to you
What if you don't talk back
I'm affraid of pain
I've never liked that
I'm affraid of failure
What will others think
I'm affraid of correction
Don't think little of me
I'm affraid of Life
What if it holds nothing for me
I'm affraid of you
Because you're affraid of me

Fear isn't a good thing. Everyone is affraid of something, even if they won't say it. This is for the people who are affraid, just to remind you, that you're not alone, and I want to show, that it doesn't matter what people think.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Boredom instigates extreme creativity.

"Bowing gratefully to all of my subjects, 'thank you. Thank you. The pleasure is mine." Nah, I'm just kidding. We're all kings together.'"

There are some things that just have to be written, this, and at least one other of your poems are just that.
