I am afraid of the shadows that lurk from within,
Of the demons that feed on the darkness of sin,
I’m afraid of losing to the worst of death,
Of the fear eating away at me till my last breath.
I am afraid of little things like tears and sadness,
Of losing the fight between sanity and madness
i’m afraid of smiling when I just want to die,
And of returning to lie the same tired lie.
I’m afraid of the words, “I’m okay,”
Of uttering them over and over with each day,
I’m afraid of the fear that comes after the fall,
Of the tears that come after phone calls.
No tears, no sadness, forevermore.
