Challenged myself to outlive my fear.
I allowed it to control me for so long.
It shaped my decisions.
It curtailed my desires.
Scooped me out and made me hollow.
But I decided that I couldn’t lie down anymore.
I couldn’t let it devour me from the inside out.
I fought it.
Grabbed it by its throat and defeated it.
Conquered my fear, it’s called growth.
Conquered my past, because the future is calling.
And it belongs to me.
