Acquainted - Poem by Khaleel Steir

They tell me to make the best future possible
But I reply, my future will be the best regardless because I know where I'm headed
Though, that confidence has past but yet it remains
I fear the present, yet I'm anxious to see how it plays out
I excel in whatever I put my heart into
I stand tall like David when he faced Goliath
My decisions are what made me the man who stands before you
Though. my confidence stutters at times because I fear will I be the same man then as I am now
The people I will have lost, the things I will gain
These thoughts play tortuous tricks on me that keep me up at night
Those nights I stare at the ceiling while I venture into my mind to seek out answers
I ask those questions that confuse the mind like why men invented war
The war within rages. No end in sight, no peace in mind
Yet on the outside, I'm calm, relaxed. Could you tell I'm not at eas
I feel like a grenade that has started to explode, as the flames start to appear
Yet, I'm containing it. Civil unrest in a calm shell
Will I explode or implode? Or will I just go on like nothing's wrong?
