I feared being alone
Until I learned to like
Myself.


I feared failure
Until I realized that I only
Fail when I don't try.


I feared success
Until I realized
That I had to try
In order to be happy
With myself.


I feared people's opinions
Until I learned that
People would have opinions
About me anyway.


I feared rejection
Until I learned to
Have faith in myself.


I feared pain
Until I learned that
it's necessary
For growth.


I feared the truth
Until I saw the
Ugliness in lies.


I feared life
Until I experienced
Its beauty .


I feared death
Until I realized that it's
Not an end, but a beginning.


I feared my destiny,
Until I realized that
I had the power to change
My life.


I feared hate
Until I saw that it
Was nothing more than
Ignorance.


I feared love
Until it touched my heart,
Making the darkness fade
Into endless sunny days.


I feared ridicule
Until I learned how
To laugh at myself.


I feared growing old
Until I realized that
I gained wisdom every day.


I feared the future
Until I realized that
Life just kept getting
Better.


I feared the past
Until I realized that
It could no longer hurt me.


I feared the dark
Until I saw the beauty
Of the starlight.

I feared the light
Until I learned that the
Truth would give me
Strength.


I feared change,
Until I saw that
Even the most beautiful butterfly
Had to undergo a metamorphosis
Before it could fly.
