I Know I Can Stand without My Feet

"I try to stand up when I feel strong
But I keep falling into your arms
 I dont stay there for long
I know you mean no harm
But Im scared of being wrong
I want to know ,is that real charm?"


Why are you afraid of me
I just want to be close to you
I know what you want to be
Your trying to be someone new
Someone who can by themselves see
Someone who will stop with the blue

"Yes,your right,
Its you I fright
Because i want to be myself
I dont want anyone or yours help"

But ill help you make it on your own
Ill give you a hand
And ill see you grown
Alone you shall stand.

    Providing someone with the ability to stand on their own is a great gift, Sajdah. If you can accomplish this when someone is reluctant to accept your help, you have really accomplished something special. Very nicely written! Love, Carolyn
