I’ve been afraid for years,
Yet I didn’t let fear stop me,
I slowly kept rising throughout the years,
I kept working hard for what was best for me,
It makes me proud to look back and see how hard I worked throughout the years.
I am still afraid,
Yet I’m not afraid like I used to be,
The many obstacles that I overcame made me less afraid,
I’m so proud that I’m not where I used to be,
I’m so thankful that I’m less afraid.
Yes, it was a challenge,
One question was, “Do I want to settle here?”
Another questions was, “Do I want to take the challenge?”
I chose not to settle here,
I took the challenge.
Perhaps in a way I enjoyed the challenge,
There’s something within me that doesn’t want me to settle,
I ask myself, “What kind of life will I have without a challenge?”
It feels like a boring life if I settle,
Thus, for now I’ll keep taking the challenge.
