Angel

I used to be afraid 
Afraid of everything that came in my path 
I ran away from it all 
All the good and all the bad 
I was afraid of myself 
And who i was becoming 

I tried it all 
All that could be tried 
To stop me from being afraid 
To be as strong as i could 
To be who i was before 
The "angel" who could do it all 

I was afraid to have to explain myself to everyone 
Who i was becoming 
And how i wasnt that "angel" that could do it all 
I was becoming the one 
Who needed help and a shoulder to cry on 

I tried it all 
All that could be tried 
To stop me from being afraid 
To be as strong as i could
To be who i was before 
The "Angel" who could do it all 

I had trouble 
But as i tried 
It became easier and clearer to see 
That i was still that "angel" 
Just hidden behind Fear. 

Soon I'll be me ?
