A Poem by taylorrose

I cant say I'm afraid to die anymore
I've died many times in this life
I didn't die for real
pretty much I did
I used to be afraid to die
afraid of where we go
afraid it will hurt
but then I began
to die a lot
the baby that I used to be
died slowly
with everything I witnessed growing up
a little piece of me died to
I started to fear other things
which also killed a little piece of me
we have all had a piece of us die
with each person we love that pass
a little piece of us does to
fear itself is death
it makes us kill a little part of who we are
to live in fear is to die every day
we fear of being alone
we fear of failing
we fear of never being good enough
so I cant say I'm scared to die
because I've been dying since the day I was born
fear is the death of us all
