Sometimes our fears are really our thoughts...

I fear many things,

change, the deranged,

and some human beings.

I fear falling off a skyscraper,

and being told I am not good enough by haters

I fear disappointing others

and failing to live up to perfection

I fear loving one another.

I fear peering deep into my soul

for self reflection.


I fear

what is wrong, but secretly still crave it.

I fear life, I fear death,

but I still try and brave it

I fear messing up,

and being judged.

I fear to appear like I am confident in everything

because that is not who I am


I am a weak

hopeless cause

I want to be happy when I am sad,

I don’t let these fears tell me what to do I overcome them

and tell them what to do


Unless I break down, then I cry alone in my room.

On my bed my fears tell me all my flaws and imperfections,

they tell me I have a flawed complexion.

Then I think these are just thoughts not really fears

why have I been upset for all of these years

I am not weak I am strong I can be who I want


An artist, a dreamer, a creative mind.

Keep the perfection,  but leave the rest behind.
