i have always pegged myself as brave
with terror the last thing to set me in my grave
thought i was strong and mighty tall
with nothing to scare my soul and make me fall
but boy, was i mistaken
i was wrong
for fear runs deep in my blood
and fright as the beat of my heart
i tried my hardest to fight it all
but only so much can i withstand within my walls
my protective guard became sacrificial
my strong facade all superficial
i was fearless.
but now i am afraid.
