ONE of these days
I won’t fear.
I won’t fear the night,
or its terrors of fright
that cut deep and bite,
so deeply it pries.
It pries in my mind
and loosens the ties
that keep a tight bind
on the memories inside.
And I can’t let them find
freedom to climb
and choke out my mind,
like a wild growing vine
that around my heart winds.
But there will come a time
that my fears will die.
Yes one of these days
I won’t fear.
One day…
And I won’t be held down
by the fears I have found
in the sights and sounds
of a world surely bound
by dooms day clouds…
Its resources running out,
quakes swallowing the ground,
acts of terror all around,
soon the anti christ crowned,
in hell we’ll surely drown…
Racial wars unwound,
the economy is down,
social media pounds,
the fear and the doubts.
But I take this vow,
that one day…
one of these days
I will not fear.
I won’t be afraid.
And I’ll be brave
One day…

Soon one day,
I won’t be afraid
of choices I’ve made,
and the price that was paid.
I won’t fear bleeding chains
of secrets and pain,
and of tattoos of shame.
No I won’t be afraid
of the lonely loud rain,
or the reality waves
that I won’t be the same.
All the scars and stains,
from my spirit slain,
made my prayers in vain.
Hatred inflamed
and bitterness came.
A home anger claimed,
in my heart full of shame,
while slowly hope drained.
But remember my name.
For one day,
yes one of these days,
I won’t be afraid.
And I won’t fear.
One day…
The day is near,
there will be no more tears.
Let all who can hear,
know that fear
will die by my spear.
And I’ll be free.
You’ll see.
One of these days,
one day soon,
I won’t fear.
One day.
