Scared

I'm afraid.
I'm afraid of the dark.
I'm afraid of horses.
I'm afraid of heights.
I'm afraid of drowning.
I'm afraid of death.

I'm afraid of falling behind.
I'm afraid of failing in school.
I'm afraid of success.
I'm afraid of losing my friends.
I'm afraid of losing myself.

I'm afraid of money.
I'm afraid of not having enough.
I'm afraid of having too much.
I'm afraid of giving.
I'm afraid of taking.

I'm afraid of being alone.
I'm afraid of being lonely
I'm afraid of rejection.
I'm afraid of the future.
I'm afraid of being judged.

I'm afraid of talking.
I'm afraid of silence.
I'm afraid of not being listened to.
I'm afraid of being lied to.
I'm afraid of lying to myself.

I'm afraid of love.
I'm afraid of hate.
I'm afraid of everyone.
I'm afraid of myself.

I'm not afraid.

I'm just scared.
