Self aware

Written by: Anna Hopper

The most troubling moment
Is when we see our selves clear
We must salvage and own it
We must battle the fear

Flaws come in sight
Jaws of the night
They are even more clear
When you turn on the light

They won’t disappear 
Like our childhood fears
Irrational terrors 
From our younger years

Very much real
Unyielding steel
Once discovered
We foot the bill

You’ll never rewind
You’re no longer blind
You’ve let lose, the demons
Who live in your mind
