Find The Courage

That albatross
around my neck
grows heavier each day
feeding on my fear

It’s not that I am unaware
of what will free me
of the burden

But I lack the courage
to cast off
this yoke of indecision

Perhaps I wait
for my anger to spike
on the flame of your hatred
jolt me out of a numbing inertia

But deep within
the truth rises
until I am forced
to confess

the strength
to cut the noose
has to be mine alone
