I Am My Own Anchor!

Posted: March 12, 2018

No one will support you or stand with you until you decide to do that for yourself. You are your own support system, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

The relationships that I have fail,

Compell me to raise the veil,

There awaits a strong hail,

But the unbroken me will sail,

Don’t read me as just another tale,

And codify the voice as pale,

Yes, I am scared till the brink,

But I have the courage to sink,

No matter what the world would think,

I will write the story with my ink,

To them, I appear confused and aimless,

But the sailor in me is relentless,

Never guard my vulnerability,

I am enough to protect my individuality,

Thank you for tying me to a shore,

But there is this journey which I amore,

O, People! this boat is ready to saunter,

Don’t be afraid, as I am my own anchor!
