Don'T Be Afraid - Poem by Antonis Manousos

My thoughts are lost...
something has them tied down...
something deep in my mind..
It screams to me that I am wrong..
everything around me looks like a cemetary.
In the arena of my mind I am fighting with myself
Someone is puting ideas in my mind that I have failed and that it is a mistake that I live...
But I still breathe...I still breathe..

Dont be afraid, as long as you are true dont be afraid...

There are so many lighs around but you only see darkness.
You walk in the street and you dont dare to look up wondering if everything is a big joke..
Its your last chance of surviving-jump out!

Dont be afraid, you can break your chains and your fears as long as you dont sleep...dont be afraid.

    A wonderful compostion where it is told 'There are so many lighs around but you only see darkness.' But on the otherhand it is also came out 'you can break your chains and your fears as long as you dont sleep...dont be afraid.'

    Ultimately an optimistic attitude is the core theme of this poem. So 10... (Report) Reply
