That moment of clarity - I am not afraid of you
You standing towering over me, daring me to be afraid
Yes - my legs are shaking, adrenaline is flowing through my body
My body is preparing for attack and defense
You may hurt my physical body, you may punch
Or kick me in the head
But my mind is clear, I see you, child who
Hasn’t accomplished anything in your life
Using the threat of physical violence to get some power
And I am able to stare back
ground in my own truth
And dare you to attack me again
