I want to forget

about all of my

doubts, worries, and fears

because then there

would be no distractions

from the

humor, joy, and love

that I have in abundance

but that can never be

fear laces my memories

and my faithful shadow of doubt

will always appear

when the sun shines

and the sun will burn

the worry under my skin

that is why

the night is my friend

because it hides my doubt

and distracts my fears

and lets my worries be

but I am learning

to wear sunscreen
