I have this fear
That one day I will be all alone
And the people I love the most
Will have moved on with their lives.
I have this fear that someday
I will look in the mirror
And see everything I loved about myself
Gone with age, replaced with hopelessness
And bitterness with a life lived
Unfulfilled and unsatisfied.
I have a fear that my legacy will be
Nothing but a whisper
A longing of being part of something bigger
But never having an inkling
On how achieve it.
I have a fear that my fears
Are the reason I am in this mindset,
But I am stuck because
I don’t know how to not be afraid .
