“Not Afraid”   Eminem

.

.

defiant!

doesn’t mean

i’m not afraid

but

fuck my fears!

i’m gonna live

create

write

sing

dance

get the demons out

any way i can

.

defiant!

doesn’t mean

i’m not afraid

but

fuck my fears!

i’m gonna keep tryin’

to be aware

to pay attention

to really care

to give my all

chase the demons away

with kindness

.

defiant!

doesn’t mean

i’m not afraid

but

fuck my fears!

i’m not alone

if  i fall down

there’s a hand

reaching out

to help me up

beat the demons off

push ’em away

.

.

defiant!

doesn’t mean

i’m not afraid

but

fuck my fears!

i’m still here

i’ve had enough

of  giving in to my fears

sabotaging myself

gonna make a change

ignore the demons

turn my back

and walk away

into my future

defiant!

i recommend listening to the song while reading the poem as i was listening to it as i wrote. i don’t know much about Eminem’s work, but my muse led me to this song and i feel it fits in perfectly with the feeling of  my poem and ~ maybe ~ relates to how a graffiti artist feels at times, i don’t know.
