Don’t Be Afraid

Don’t be afraid when the world comes knocking on your door
When the windows rattle and your palms shake.
Don’t be afraid when they say they’ve got warrants
And they have reasonable proof to put you down.
Don’t be afraid when they are all against you
And you can’t even speak or make a sound.
Don’t be afraid when there’s no one to help you
Because even your best friend got swayed with the crowd.
Don’t be afraid if you can’t stand up.
But use your reason to shut them down.
Don’t be afraid when you can’t defend yourself
When your points are valid but they won’t hear you out.
Don’t be afraid if they say you can’t make it
Cause they don’t know the amount of struggle that went down.
Don’t be afraid if they cast long shadows
You just get up and turn the lights back on.
Don’t be afraid if the world comes knocking,
Cause honey it’s time to break that door down.
