This Question I Ask Myself
Sean Michael, February 2017
Should I defend my blunders in the face of hypocrisy—
or will I be steadfast and silent?
Should I trend in the shadows of a leader I do not wish to follow—
or would I be wise to forge my own path and depart the tyrant’s?
Would I have the strength to stand for what I believe even if I’m left standing alone—
or would I blend into the crowd and be lost in the numbers?
Can I believe in myself?!
Will I give into the lies?!
Will I give into the voice that tells me I’ll fail?!
Or will I try?!
These questions linger in my mind—
but the answers are not there.
No, the answers to these questions lie far beyond the fear.
