Losing Life to Fear

In fear of being heard,

In fear of being understood,


In fear of not being heard,

In fear of not being understood,


In fear of being misheard,

In fear of being misunderstood,


In fear of hearing too much,

In fear of understanding too much,



In fear of saying too much,

In fear of saying too little,


In fear of being too enlightened,

In fear of not being factually correct,


In fear of being too bright,

In fear of being too ignorant,



In fear of being praised,

In fear of being bullied,


In fear of not being like others,

In fear of loosing my individuality,


In fear of being ostracized,

In fear of being camouflaged,


In fear of being the attraction,

In fear of being ignored,


In fear of being too different,

In fear of being too common,


In fear of following others,

In fear of disobeying others,


In fear of being too gullible,

In fear of being too stubborn,


In fear of being used,

In fear of being misused,



In fear of rewards,

In fear of punishments,


In fear of responsibility,

In fear of expectations,


In fear of being trusted,

In fear of being mistrusted,


In fear of your lack of response,

In fear of your over-reaction,


In fear of eternal silence,

In fear of noisy communication,



In fear of your acceptance,

In fear of your rejection,


In fear of exciting you,

In fear of upsetting you,


In fear of loving you,

In fear of hating you,


In fear of your love,

In fear of your hatred,


In fear of being loved,

In fear of being hated,



In fear of thinking,

In fear of existing,


In fear of living,

In fear of dying,



In fear of being myself,

In fear of being another,


In fear of knowing myself,

In fear of neglecting myself,




I lost my voice;

I lost my identity;

I lost my self.



I lost this life;

I lost my life;

I lost life's life.
