Creeping slowly,

Each day, every moment,

Through my thoughts,

It haunted, attacked,

Made me miserable.

The enemy,

Mocked at my resolutions,

Began to build its base,

An attempt,

To ruin my imagination.

Helpless, frightened,

I searched for aid everywhere,

To evade the silent enemy,

But none could rescue me

Or provide a defending solution.

One day, exhausted,

I dropped on the floor,

And dormant self-confidence sprang forth!

Ah! I discovered my remedy ultimately!

To overcome fear, the silent enemy.
