Fears We All Have In Our Minds

Location

I’m afraid of myself

I’m afraid that I will never succeed

I’m afraid that my parents will be disappointed in my decisions

I’m afraid that the world will not accept me for who I am

 

I’m afraid that I’ll be shot down if I stand out

I’m afraid my thoughts will consume me

I’m afraid that life will go by too fast

I’m afraid that I will live with ungrateful eyes

 

I’m afraid that my friends will think this is stupid

I’m afraid of being an individual

I’m afraid of loving and not being loved

I’m afraid I’ll go crazy over my emotions

 

I’m afraid because I’m lost

I’m afraid because we are all lost

I’m afraid because we are more lost than ever

I’m afraid because we are all alone

 

I believe that I’m lost

I believe that we are all lost

I believe that we are more lost than ever

I believe that we are alone


We must assert ourselves to be found

We must learn to love ourselves

We must learn to work together

We must become unified as a world

 

So I am afraid of a lot of things

I am afraid of the future above all else

However I am afraid because I care

I am lost but I am trying to find myself

 

You must find yourself inside of you

Don’t rely on others perceptions

Be comfortable with yourself before they are

Then you will be able to find yourself
