I was hesitant to
step onto the light  
I was the fear  
itself from within  

but I buried it well  
with the fearless veneer †
and drowned me  
in a quicksand †
staring at a rope  
over my head  

time to time †
you get a nudge †
to your toes †
lifting you up  
still, you refuse †
to grab the rope  

because  
you tremble at  
the voices inside  

they try to convince  
an escape doesnít †
come this easy †

they try to take  
you to the bottom  
saying the true †
escape is there †  

but it keeps  
nudging you †
levitating you  

and finally, you †
grab the rope  
with your †
brokenness  
weakness  
wickedness  
hopelessness  
tiredness  
and half closed eyes  

and today, Iím not scared  
of the darkness that ruined my days  
with a strengthened heart, a faithful soul  
a righteous spirit and Iím filled with hope  

because,  

עִמָּנוּאֵל‎ † Immanuel  
God is with (us) me
