Afraid

Location

Afraid to ask for counsel
Afraid of what they'll say
Afraid of being torn again
Afraid of being away

Steady is not my emotions
Steady is not my heart
Steady like the wind which is
Steady not from the start

Afraid of what the silence holds
Afraid to face the truth
Afraid of all I ever was
Afraid of losing you

Cover everything inside
Cover up or blot
Cover is what I've always done
Cover or should I not

Afraid of empty promises
Afraid of unspoken words
Afraid of all the memories
Afraid of forgetting turns
Afraid of everything the future holds
Afraid of the fear that burns
