Visits to old graves,

Fears I thought buried,

Resurface around me,

Like ghosts


Thoughts choke me,

My will breaking,

As they seek control,



But I am stronger than this,

But I can face this,

But I can choose,

But I can live


They need not have,

Such power over me,

It is true I cannot control them,

I cannot control my fear


But I can control my reaction,

But I can control their power,

But I can control my course of action,

But I can survive
