Finding Courage – A Poem

I want to be happy
Without losing myself.
I want to achieve everything
Without being nagged with worrying

There are difficult days
Sometimes I am nervous and afraid
So I look myself in the mirror and say
I am alright, I am okay
And everything will be fine today

Sometimes failures making me bleed
But maybe that’s all I need
To put one step in front of another
Finding the courage to move further
