I Am Brave

Here I am again, floating in space
Not even knowing my place
And where I belong
In this life that feels so long
Everywhere I've been
I couldn't fit in
I feel so lost
Like a speck of dust
What is wrong with me?
Why can't I be me
Why can't no one accept me
and make me feel free

Yet nobody could hear
My anguish so loud and clear

I am floating in this black hole
And it's gonna swallow me whole
I am crying
Am I dying?
Yet nobody could hear
My anguish so loud and clear
I've forgotten who I was
Made me feel so aghast
Then I saw a light
A light shining so bright
It whispered into my ear
It made everything clear

And now I remember
I am a fighter

"You are Brave," it said
"Always put that in your head."
Those words made me strong
Something I've never felt for so long
And now I remember
I am a fighter
And I'll always be brave
From womb to grave

This poetry was originally written and submitted as a project for Grade 8 English.
