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

because,  

עִמָּנוּאֵל Immanuel  
God is with (us) me
