Treasure Island

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

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
