The Fears We Have


Life is what you make of it
At least that's what I hear
It's hard to live your life
When you're living it in fear

Fear of being judged
Or not being enough
Fear of being eternally single
Never having experienced true love

Fear of being happy
For you feel it won't last
Fear of unveiling our true selves
So instead we hide behind a mask

Fear of being trusting
For we know people lie
Fear of being too honest
And making someone cry

Fear of being Vulnerable
For it may be seen as weak
Fear of looking different
For you may be labeled as a freak

Fear is my biggest down fall
For it plagues me everyday
All my biggest fears
You'll find written on this page

I hide myself away from the world
For I don't think that they'd understand
Inside I'm still bent and broken
And just trying to find who I am

I know that I am strong
And happiness I seek
Fear can be all consuming
And make life look bleak

Everyone has a story
Everyone is unique
Our one common denominator
Is the fear that lies beneath

If life is what you make of it
And I feel that it's true
Live your life to the fullest
And never let fear control you
