Running Scared

There’s something on my mind that’s been troubling me
There’s something on my mind that won’t let me be free
I’m worried, I cannot relax and put my feet up
I’m chained down by my self-consciousness
I’m chained down by my own regret
I’m chained down by the chances I didn’t take
I’m chained down by the decisions I didn’t make
I’m scared about what this life has in store
If life was a test, right now I wouldn’t have a high score
Everyday that goes by seems more surreal
I don’t know about you but this isn’t ideal
I’m worried
I don’t know if I can follow through with this
I don’t know if I can escape this fear
What you see before you is not me
This is not who I want to be
It is so hard to get out of bed everyday
I’m frightened
I’m terrified of the world around me
I’m skeptical of things that astound me
I’m scared of “what if”
I’m always feeling like I’m standing on the edge of a cliff
I’m running scared but from what?
I think I know, can you see?
I’m really running scared from one thing

  1. Love it! Greatly written and with a strong end.

    Take a look in the mirror my friend
    Because in the end
    You will be who you’re supposed to be
    And you will say proudly: ‘this is me’!

    Hugz ♥

  2. You are not the only one, I can totally relate. Working on embracing the inner me and projecting it outward.
