I am brave, independent and pretty darn tough!
I go for hikes in the jungle-like woods
I am not afraid of the poisonous snakes hiding in my path.
I do not fear the wild boars rustling in the bushes,
I am not scared of the monkeys bearing their teeth.
I walk through that trail,
smile on my face,
sweat dripping down my cheeks,
while my mind solves all of my problems
from the week past.
Shiver down the spine,
neck quickly turning,
Okay, well, perhaps I am just a little bit afraid,
but it hasn’t stopped me yet.
**A man once told me that a little bit of fear is important, it keeps us on our toes and keep us safe. The same man also said that I reminded him of Punky Brewster, so I wasn’t sure if I should trust him. **
