Treasure Island

Trever Barlow

Afraid


I am not afraid of spiders or of the nights
I am not afraid of bees or scared of heights

I am not scared of the pain of death
I feel I could accept my last breath

I am not afraid to show emotion
to live my life and cause commotion

I am not too scared to love my friends
even though it always ends

I am not afraid of what I feel
just cannot tell when it is real

None of these things I really fear
for what I fear comes from within

I am afraid that after falling for you
I will be left alone, crushed, broken in two

I fear I deserve no love
no one sent from above

I fear I cant better myself
for the good of my health

I am afraid to feel cold and alone
after being so close, and feeling at home

lastly I fear what I may have become
All the mistakes I have made that cant be undone

these fears keep me awake at night
and fill my heart with a chilling fright

every day I must face my fears
but I will be strong, no one will see any tears

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
