Falling in love isn’t easy but it’s not hard either. It’s all about a leap of faith and trusting in someone else. And when you’ve been burned and bruised, it’s not easy to trust and it’s scary to love. So today, in the car, where I do much of my deep thinking, I wrote this poem. I’ll call it Confidence.
It’s because of me that I met you.
Saying “hello, you seem awesome, I’m awesome too.
But it doesn’t matter much.
Because underneath that confidence.
I’m just a scared little girl.
A big heart,
a soul that knows where to go.
And I really don’t know what I’m doing.
It’s a big world. I’m a small girl.
And you could hurt me.
I’ll take a chance with you.
I’m just a scared little girl,
Scared of this big bad world.
And I need to know I can trust in you.
