Afraid to lose..

**I shared a poem earlier that I had been working on for two days, and there were actually two, I went with the more positive one to share and left this in my drafts. But they say poetry is a writing of feeling. And one of my feelings is fear and worry, it comes with the territory and anxiety. So I figured what the hell, here it is**

Afraid to lose,

Afraid of fear,

Afraid of losing those who are dear.

Afraid to lose,

Afraid of failing,

Afraid of losing everything in a tear.

Afraid to lose,

Afraid of never being enough

No matter how you try.

Afraid to lose,

For being who you are are,

All you can be, until the day you die.

Afraid to lose

Afraid of mental illness,

Afraid of sadness.

Afraid to lose,

Afraid of pain,

Afraid of your foolish pride.

Afraid to lose,

Afraid he’ll run or hide

Afraid he’ll take back wanting you as his bride.

Afraid to lose,

Afraid of hurt,

Afraid of lies.

Afraid to lose,

Afraid of death,

Afraid of goodbyes.
