I Lost


I lost 

What did I lose 

I lost years to fear 

To the fear of being too scared to try

Too scared to act 

To act on my dreams 

To dream so big it couldn’t be denied 

To deny myself my only desire

The desire to take a chance

Lost my youth to this fear 

Gave in to being safe 

Chose safety over risk

Settled for the comfort

Surrender my happiness

From fearless to fearful 

I lost

I lost my way 

To far gone to turn back

To turn back to try again

I lost

So lost I will stay
