Set my Fears on Fire


I Set My Fears on Fire is a poem of a beautiful moment where I was able to write down all of my fears and throw them into a fireplace.  It was absolutely liberating. 

I set my fears on fire

The ones held close to my heart

Entwined in the depths of me.

I pulled them out one by one

Pouring out of me like hot sauce

Bringing tears as I wrote on the page.

I ripped them to make them small

Still holding onto them.

Tightly. And there I stood by the fire

Breathing and feeling them out of my body

I set my fears on fire and as I stood there

She said “Be Free.”

Breath in…out

And so it is.

I am free.
