I'M Not Afraid Any More - Poem by Akeem Mair

Today woke up without the fear
in me it always there
All of sudden it disappeared
And everything became clear
I gotta be the person
that I am suppose to be
I lived my life following the rules
but I was never free
Until took off the mask of fear
and then I became a human being
I can be anything that I wanted,
it was so far from what I was seeing
I was blind because I was afraid
of what could happen
But that was exactly the problem
ain't nothing so tragic
Of thinking I could of failed when I could of prayed
and ask God for his magic
But I was so consumed of living
a life that was doomed
I didn't see the difference of living
a fairytale and a cartoon
But please don't shoot, I ain't ready to die
til my dreams take flight
I gotta change for the best of me
because I was living a lie
In other words what do I want my bio
to say about me?
That I lived cowardly on my knees
or did I die upon my feet
You could choose what you would do
but I'll choose bravery
Any other options
is just different form of slavery
If you asked me...
