"I’ll never be afraid" I said,
As thoughts of death froze in my head.
I fight every day as fear grips my heart.
If I let it control me, I’ll be torn apart.
But it holds to me at night, so I’m constantly screaming.
I open my eyes only to find that I’m dreaming.
And each time the fear tries to take control.
It leaves behind another small hole.
It manifested a catacomb of suffering and pain.
Shy away from that storm due to acid rain.
"I’m not afraid to die, my soul will travel high,"
It’s what I said; I guess I lied.
Because I’m telling you now, knowing you’re gunna die sucks.
It’s like a stray bullet passing through when nobody ducks.
Now I stand alone on this dark, stormy night.
Smile in acceptance and give up this mortal fight.
In the end, I suppose it’s my life that was paid,
Consequently, I’m sorry- but I’m so afraid.
