(for Aisha Zakari)

I am so afraid
For the task ahead
I need not be
Ashamed of it

I know that
It is a natural feeling
I can really be courageous
When I am afraid
Now my fear is naked

What quality do I need?
Just to develop
True courage
Yes, it is the only power
To overcome my fear

Really courageous people
Succeeded in overcoming
Their fears
To die as a hero
Is better than
To die a coward

I am sure now
I am not afraid
Because I’m ready
Very ready to face the challenges
To overcome fear is natural
I always need moral courage
And will-power to be a hero
