Unbind Myself

In the sway of the wind
Silver silk glistens pearlescent
In the shining summer sun
As the confident spider lays in wait
Knowing the difference
Between prey and the breeze
And in my attempted movement
To forge forward to my future
I feel caught in her strings
Tied in place to my current state
Dubious of my abilities
To break free of my mindset
Limiting by possibilities
For I am tangled tightly
In the web of crippling fear
Sometimes of my very own shadow
But mostly of falling short
And thus I am bound and trapped
In a circle of threads
Attempt and abandon
Or never starting at all
For I shall bring myself down
Bind myself to the snare
To prohibit deciding or trying
For I can talk as the best of them can
Persuade myself out
Of what might be best for me
My minds form of protection
Because failing hurts
But only until you succeed
