Resurgence

Crystal Chandelier by Nutdanai Apikhomboonwaroot/FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Challenges used to call

relished

faced

Confidence would suffocate fear

complete

smothered

Positive would quash negative

fuelled

encouraged

These are the facets now discoloured

smudged

Traits within, long since trampled

buried

The rope of youth hangs near

trailing from the skies of my conscience

Climb it, I will

Pull myself up

Preserve my spirit

Soar

like I once did

The cloud of doubt expands,

thickens

suffocating all sense,

all instinct

Questions barb into my mind

piercing

hurting

Confidence dissipating

Self-assurance seeping away

into the pit

of my bottomless heart
