The world once made me sick,
Fear kept me in my room,
I couldn’t step out of my room without feeling sick,
I felt safe in my room,
Yet it depressed me every time I felt sick.
I cried and I prayed to get better,
Yet I knew deep down it was up to me to overcome my fear,
So I slowly left my room in order to get better,
I stayed a few minutes outside in order to slowly overcome my fear,
It was so hard to fight to get better.
Eventually, minutes became hours,
Eventually, I could stay outside without running inside,
I learned to appreciate the world during the hours,
The fear inside became falling in love inside,
I fell in love with the world during those hours.
Now I can travel to a different state,
I’m grateful for each person that I meet,
It’s truly a blessing and a miracle that I can go to another state,
It brings happy tears to not fear every person that I meet,
Still, I’ll always prefer my own state.
