Why Am I So Afraid? - Poem by Nicholas Wayde Turner

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.
