Why Am I So Afraid?
I wish I didn't have to live a lie everyday of my life.
I'm so scared what might happen if it's exposed.
Help me figure out what I need to do.
Help me find the strength to do what's right.
I'm so scared that I will lose everything.
I'm so scared that I'm going to make them mad.
This is too much stress for one person.
And I'm going through it a lone.
If I tell, then everything will blow up like it did in the past.
I need someone to talk to.
My heart is constantly racing.
My breathing is getting shallow.
I walk around in a trance more than I should.
But I can't help how I feel.
All these lies.
All these secretes.
They are draining the life out of me.
Pretty soon there won't be anything left.
Please help me.
