Doubts can be sharp as knives
As they go deep beyond the bone
Through cracks in your outer layer
Hurting our souls, innards shown.

Spoken or unspoken, it doesn’t matter
Like flotsam, deep within your brain
Fear can always come rising up
From that hole, you can’t contain

Qualms and worries, without protection
Seem larger than life, hiding from sight
Feeding on darkness while distracting
Veiling the fact that you can, tonight

Stand your ground, pounce your chest
Intimidate the fears that seem so immense
Well, you can be bigger, have faith
That you yourself, are your first defense.
