Scared of the shadows
hiding in the night
Scared of the shadows
made by the light
Scared of losing me
not knowing wrong from right
Scared of giving into fear
trying to be brave enough
Scared of making my dreams true
only to end up losing my way
Scared of facing myself
to end up all alone
Scared of being scared
of the unknown
Scared of hating myself
disappointed in what I do
Exactly what will happen if I stay scared of the shadows in view

    I reallllly love your rhymes and repetition they're just so classic. But also, it's okay to have anxiety about everything because you're still strong enough to keep pushing forward. Thanks for sharing!

    This was simply beautiful. We have to get over our fears because a life of fear is a life unfulfilled. Love that you put this perspective out there of the reality of these fears, and that we all go through them.
