There's no more room within me to be small.
Not when a heart of courage calls for greatness
That frightens me with paralyzing pleas
To make the world
A better place.
Or when a soul so resolute to love
Refuses to heed reason.
The unknown, lurking in the shadows
Is a monster...
Yet we coexist.

There's no more room within me to be frightened.

This silence, so discrete, 
Perfectly hiding
Every explosion painting the gray matter of the mind
With brilliant flashes-
Blinding eyes and golden tears,
Overwhelms me
With a ringing deafness.
