Too Scared


Too scared to breathe

Inhaling all insecurities

Too scared to speak

Saying things that make me sound like a freak

Too scared to think

Thoughts provoke me to sink

Too scared to be

Knowing that the world will see the real me

Too scared to dream

Nightmares come more often than waters of a stream

Too scared to run

The past burns me hotter than the sun

Too scared to rise

Afraid I may just hit the sky

Too scared to appeal

Shadowing from how I truly feel
