SHE IS SCARED.

SHE IS SCARED.

A Poem by Sarah


she is scared
of saying the wrong things
at the wrong time.
so she hardly speaks her mind
and people judge too quickly
think she's antisocial
when she just needs to feel comfortable.

she is scared
people might dislike her work
call her fake
and say she doesn't deserve to call herself a writer.
she has a collection of poetry
and musings that are heartbreaking
but it is all kept safely
locked away in her cupboard,
unknown to the world.

she is scared
of hanging out with people
just in case they ask her questions
she doesn't have the answers to
or talk about things
she doesn't know of
and seclude her.
so she says no to all invitations
and stays home.

she is scared
people might make fun of her
for the kind of music she likes
so she says she doesn't listen to music at all.
little does she know
there are people out there
who like One Direction and Fall Out Boy both.

she has too many insecurities
and doesn't know how to handle them.
she is scared of too many things
and doesn't know how to get over them.

no.
she is not me.
but I used to be her.
