Night falls
Everyone settling into it
Then came the terrific
A bang!
A loud bang at the entrance
What could it be
Who could it be
Not again
Thought this was sorted out last time

Then the door came down
Where do I hide this time
Searching round in fear for a safe place
Where I could fold and tuck away
From the preying eyes of my terror

Totally terrified
Shivering like one abandoned in the cold
My eyes completely shut
With me muttering my silent prayers
Not understanding why it should be me again

Pounding steps coming closer and closer
Then  horrible hoarse voice thundering
'Come out now or...'

Oh me, what do I do
Chill running down my spine
They know I am here
What's my escape now
Fear having a good meal on me
Plead for mercy
Or come out and face my fears
Or remain here and let it ravage me for as long as forever
Battle of the mind!
Whether bravely or cowardly I have to make a move
I have to decide
Either to be defeated again or face these devils

Looking straight into the dark of the room
To see who and what they were this time
Ready to face them
Suddenly like a burst came courage
In a rush came strength
Now determined to defeat

Who are you and what do want
Voice not quavering
Voice not stuttering
At my utterance they stumbled away
I saw them flee with speed like flash 

Oh I won!
I won my fears
I won by braving up and facing it
Then came the morning and the light of the day

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
