Poem – Life by the Reins

Nobody tells you when to stand on your own

On your own two feet

To stand tall

To be proud of you

Nobody tells you when to take charge

When to take life by those reins

When to keep the words to yourself

Or speak them out loud

Nobody tells you to quiet your voice

Or to find it

To raise it when you need to

It continues every day

There will never be any peace

Nobody tells you when you will fall

Without warning

Wishing provocation

The blackness to rock bottom

Or when to stand up again

Nobody but you
