Defy Your Fear to Fly [Original Poem]

Defy Your Fear to Fly

When I look towards the mirror
I never touch the glass
I’m afraid I’ll grace reflections
Of a long and haunted past
I keep my spirit upbeat
As I forever lend my voice
Hoping that you’ll hear me
Hoping you still have a choice
And as I wait for your responses
Inside I refuse to cry
For the heights must come to matter
As we push our fears aside
And we might not stick the landing
The risk exists for me to try
The heights must come to matter
I must defy your fear to fly
