In the shadows

It is as though it lurks in the shadows, to pounce upon our dreams
It waits on our decisions, to attack as they are made
Why on earth am I doing this?
Do I think I am capable enough?
What will people think of me?

It is in truth a tragic reminder
We cannot bear all things
We strive to reach and grab higher
But we are shot by inner flings

No voice alone can withstand that feeling, speaking demon
Expelled by none our own thought or words
Our only recourse is to action our decisions
And we prove the demon wrong

That demon will not perish
It will not shrink in light
It festers our waking nightmares
It grows when we don’t fight

We are stronger with each action
We are mightier than we know
We can make our dreams happen
And then our doubt be gone
