It’s easy fostering fears than face the facts,
Reasoning out reasons as to why you retract.
Fighting forever to put up firewalls, rather than interact,
Reassessing your responses, scared how others will react.
Needing to be nameless behind the scenes,
Hiding behind others and then say that they are mean.
For what you are scared of is not the world,
But the faceless face staring back from the mirror, waiting to be unfurled.
