Afraid. I’m afraid of a lot of things. I don’t like to admit it I’m afraid to be vulnerable.
By Lexi on 09.23.2012
I’m afraid of many things. Afraid of other people sometimes, or to cross a bridge and see the depth of the sea or the road under me. Or to try new things, but I know I’ll love anyway.

Im not afraid
I can stop when I want
I wont let it take over my life
I will let myself triumph over it
But, my balls itch.
So ill do it again.

The light was sharp. Katie didn’t know that things so bright could cut so deep into her security. He was home. Whenever the light came on, the terror started. Where would she hide this time. He knew all her spots. She prayed for the darkness, for the end of it.

I love being afraid. I want to hide in a corner from my violent boyfriend. Don’t make a sound. He can hear me. If he hears me, he will find me, and I will no longer be. Afraid.
By Therese on 09.23.2012
Afraid. Afraid to live, afraid to die. Afraid to even try. Afraid to be yourself, afraid to be someone else. Always, always afraid. Afraid to show, afraid to hold, afraid to just let go. Afraid to see, afraid to be blind. Always, always afraid.

I am afraid of everything I have heard. The awful stories, the heartbreak. the agony . But it has to be better than the loneliness I feel now.

I’m afraid I’ll never love again. He hurt me so bad. After I lost his baby, I was too afraid to even tell him about it. So much for forever.

Being afraid is a simple concept that humans think devours the brain. Well, it’s pretty common and it doesn’t eat the brain. It eats the heart. It wears you down to nothing. Some are afraid of spiders and snakes but i’m afraid that somewhere in this world there is a duck watching me. It is not a common fear but it is real! I just don’t know the word for it. If you know the word for it then you are either like me or a genius. Give up on life.

I’m afraid to show you who I really am. I’m afraid to get close to you. I’m afraid I’m not what you want. I’m afraid that I’m over thinking this and you are right for me.
I am afraid of the dark. I am afraid of the light. I am afraid of too much sugar or too much spice. I am afraid of failure. I am afraid of winning. I am afraid of soaring too high or tailspinning. I am afraid of noise. I am afraid of silence. I am afraid of flashing colors and screaming sirens. I am afraid of life. I am afraid of death. I am afraid of the moments when I have to hold my breath.

I’m afraid of the dark. i think secretly everybody is. That fear that we all have inside of us, that fear of the unknown. Darkness is not knowing, but it’s also not being. In a world where people want to live forever and always be remembered, it seems that a darkest fear in the core of all of us is the fear of unbeing

It seems that the word fraud has a negative connotation to many people. However I believe that being afraid an facing the fear that builds inside is a crucial part in becoming a more positive person. The less you are afraid the more mundane your life will become and the more regrets you will attain. So get out there and scare the shit out o yourself
By Harrison on 09.23.2012
i am afraid one day i won’t be able to fufill all of my dreams. i want to. i want to more than anything. i will still peruse them even though i may fail. but i won’t fail because i won’t give up. and i am afraid to play original songs, but i must get over these fears. i must conquer. i must not be afraid. i am afraid to get kicked out of my college program, because i’m not smart enough, but i will keep pushing, going forward.

A frayed edge
Afraid of the needle
That could sow seams silent
Leaving no story to tell and no thread
To trail away

When I was eighteen the NKVD came for us
And I was eighteen
and the floorboards had been in want of polishing
and Father, gone for two weeks
this is not madness
this is such fear
All that we do to each other.
By Tianwei Liu URL on 09.23.2012
Words are spoken over others and I am afraid. Looks of affirmation fall over them and I fear for my security. A revelation dawns on me: I should fear wasting away on myself, of living life having never seen others.
By EmilyH URL on 09.23.2012
Fear. It’s the only thing that can bind us in such a terrifying lock that very few things can break us out of. It holds us back, makes sure we don’t do what we want to do. It restricts us and makes us miserable. So yet why does if have such power over our lives?
The next time you’re afraid, look for the light.
By Michaela on 09.23.2012
it’s true, i’m afraid, afraid of living the life i always dreamed of of reaching for the things i’v always wished for of kissing the man i’m meant to be with of ending certain portions of my life that i’m so very used to to take on new ones that are far better for me but much different i am afraid of the change but so incredibly excited for it as well
By C. Ritchie URL on 09.23.2012
i was afraid at first until master told me pain wasn’t truth, it’s what you go through to find truth. i was afraid of silence. i was afraid to face the truth. i was afraid knowing that fear was only the mere substance shielding me from the truth.
By Danielle Burke on 09.23.2012
I’m not afraid. Although to pronounce one’s fearlessness is perhaps the greatest admission of fear. To refuse the darkness is to invite it in. To envelop and drown us.
By Will on 09.23.2012
Being afraid is refusing to live. Fear cripples you. It incapacitates you more than any other existing force. To be afraid is to give in to something that you have no control over. Choose to live. Be courageous and act on what is more important than fear. Courage.
By milly on 09.23.2012
I’m afraid. I’m very afraid of what you may or may not do to me. I’m scared that I may never see you again. I’m scared that you will just trample all over my heart. I’m scared that I mean nothing to you.
By Astrid1315 on 09.23.2012
I’ve been here before, I’ve felt this way before, this is the feeling I had when i was little. It was a feeling unlike any other, when i looked under my bed for monsters.

dark middel ages small alleys where people sit and play the dice with candle light.
By Steven on 09.23.2012
i was afraid. afraid of death. i didn’t mind the dark or the thought of monsters, in fact those sparked my imagination. i was only afraid of someone close to me dying. that’s why when my parents died i had a panic attack. I’ve been in this coma ever since.
By Jenni on 09.23.2012
There are so many things I’m afraid of. Things I wont even admit to myself. Things like the following: failure, not getting into a PhD program, being alone, being committed, being rude, getting fat, losing control. I wish I had the power to remove these fears.
By Jene on 09.23.2012
sometimes i’m afraid to grow up, go off to college, or even being unsuccessful at it. i’m afraid to leave home, i’m afraid i won’t get as far in life as i’d like to think i could. what if i never find a boyfriend? all my friends have been kissed and i haven’t. i’m afraid of my future always.
By Megan on 09.23.2012
Afraid is lack of courage.
Afraid is not trusting in yourself.
Its the dependance on others to do what you yourself believe you can’t do.
By Brooklyn on 09.23.2012
I was so afraid of taking the chance. I was afraid of loosing everything, I was afraid of being wrong and not having anything to be happy about anymore. I was so afraid. I still am.
By Robot Lilliput URL on 09.23.2012
i am afraid because of darkness and large bugs that fly into the recesses in my skull and i cannot get them out. trapped they are trapped inside me and i cannot possibly reach them. i am constricted in time and place without escape i am lost without a soul a barren wasteland with no hope but i am the only one who hopes and no one else tries because i am the only one who wants to see good and work hard.
By Bailey Super on 09.23.2012
I am afraid. I am afraid I will die like this, feeling so incomplete, so alone. I don’t understand it. I have lots of supportive people around me but still I feel it is impossible to live the way I feel I was supposed to. It really sucks. REAAAAAAALLY SUCKS. I hate who I am and the way I live. But I can’t help it. I want to cry a lot but I can’t and it feels like last year all over again.
By Duncan Brotherston on 09.23.2012
afraid is fear of the unknown. fear of what we dont understand. a dark and lonely place in only ourselves are present and only we understand in our core and heart. a bad feeling we all feel about things that are important and close to our hearts. it is with us from birth to death and everyone experiences it no matter where they are from and who they are. money and status can never solve being afraid. we are more afraid when we have more to lose
By naomi on 09.23.2012
I’m afraid of a lot of things.
A lot more than I lead others to believe.
I’m afraid of my mom dying from her ongoing battle with cancer.
I’m afraid of the depression I’ve gotten myself out of, slowly creeping up again.
But most of all; out of everything I could ever be scared of…
I’m afraid of being alone.
By Julie on 09.23.2012
i am afraid of doing anythuing to hut you because i feel like you might run away forever you tell me you wont you tell me nothing can make you run away but instead of fearing im AFRAID all the time you said you wouldnt but you did.. you said you cant so you just might. so how can i convince myself of ever not being afraid. i try, it try so hard. is it that i just dont wanna lose you, yes. because i dont if i didnt have anything
By Emily on 09.23.2012
Sometimes when you’re the most afraid is the very best time to take your biggest leap of faith and trust your instincts that all will happen exactly as it should.
By Christina Hamlett URL on 09.23.2012
I fear it. The world is closing in around as she steps forward, to deliver the news I’ve known all along but dread just the same. The three words: “We’re just friends.” How could I have been so blind to it? How could I have thought things would ever have been different?
By Mitchell on 09.23.2012
“Do not be afraid of what is around the corner” she said as I walked away from my very last moment I would see my friend. It saddened me to know our connection was about to close. But I was excited that one of us would be going on to the next level. I walked into the room and looked at the big machine. “Could you Lie on the bed please” the nurse said.
By Kerry URL on 09.23.2012
I’ve seen you before, I’ve heard your screams, terror in the night. I am your fear, your nightmare, i am the monster under your bed.
