The Fear of Fear

I’m scared.

of loving, of losing

of being self destructive

of thinking so much I don’t live

of being trapped inside my own head

of realizing everything everyone else doesn’t

of knowing more about people than they know about themselves

of understanding the way the universe works but not being able to do anything about it

of not living to see things change, of not being the one to change them

of disappointing God, my parents, my siblings and myself

of opening up and you not liking what you see

of people who don’t get it, and never will

of caring about something too much

of not caring enough

of being scared.
