Afraid

legs-434918_640

Why is she so afraid?
To stretch out her feet
To touch the cool
Water of the pool

Why is she so afraid?
Of the roller coaster
The evil turns
The stomach churns

Is she still so afraid?
Went out today
Ditched the social class
Ran barefeet on the grass

Is she still so afraid?
Met the bully
Stood up for her own
Evened the loan

She is not afraid
Let her hair down
Didn’t feel guilt
Lived life at the hilt

She is not afraid
Followed her dreams
Rode the coaster
Painted the poster
Dived in the pool
Loved the jewel.
