Be Strong and Desperately Brave.

If I run away from my thoughts,
will I avoid my memories? 

Memories of when I was younger,
and my innocence was destroyed
by my irrational fears.

Not all children
are carefree and happy.
Some are burdened by genetics
and a fear of what they may become.

So I remember asking myself,
could I ever be happy again?

The answer wasn't exactly clear,
but I know I fought
for every ounce of good emotion
I feel today,
and sometimes suffering
has a greater reward
than we can currently live.
