I'm Not Fearless

I'm Not Fearless

A Poem by Andie

I'm not fearless

Really it's true

The one thing I'm scared of

I think it's you

The look in your eye

When you get all enraged

Is enough to make me cringe

And  wish you were encaged

I'm not fearless

Though I wish I was

I wish I was fearless

And it's honestly because

I'm just waiting

For somebody to see

That the little girl behind this mask

Craves only to be free

I'm not fearless

I'm a coward, in fact

I haven't told a single soul

They'd have to catch you in the act

I read away the pain you cause

Books take me to a place I can deal

Their problems seem so much easier than mine

Why do fictional wounds always heal?

I can't be fearless

You never taught me how

I'm not fearless

I hope you'd know that by now

A nice poem I must say... It's good to accept that you're not fearless than go on pretending that you are not afraid of anything. And I do believe, like you, that books offer a way to escape the harsh, painful reality... A poem that most of the people can relate to! Good work!
