Somehow I knew deep down,

“Love is forever, fear is temporary.”

If I’d acknowledged the power,

Of those words, without worry,

Anxious over what would happen,

When I handed myself over,

To the world. Did I falter?

Yes. Ashamed to say,

I thought I was firm,

But I realised I failed,

And didn’t thank God,

Who saved me before.

Is the shame of what I feel now,

More powerful than the shame,

Of breaking my commitment,

And devotion that I once thought,

Was strong? No, it isn’t.
