I am Afraid

I’m not afraid of living

I am afraid of life

Every day’s a battle

So often filled with strife

I’m not afraid of death

I am afraid of dying

I could say that I am not

But then I would be lying

They say that fear is healthy

A way to keep us safe

To live a life the fullest

Not wasted as a waif

I will do my dearest

To keep my fear at bay

To live a life of living

Before death comes my way

    I think we’re all a scared child at times. The key is to not let it take over our lives. I hate it when people say, “you’re so strong” or “you’re a strong woman”. Not really. I’m weak, too.
