I am scared of what I’ll find Behind the closed doors I’ve been hidden from I am scared of the stories I’ve heard about the world I can’t stay ignorant anymore I have to go out there But I’m scared of what’s out there Inhumane is in itself an irony Mocking, teasing, suicide Abuse, rape, murder I’m scared I’ll be a victim If I stay out too late If I express myself I have been hidden behind the walls of shelter Of my father, of my brother But what of those Who are left naked in this world? I am scared Of what might happen to them
“I Am Scared” is a powerfully raw poem about being scared to explore the world around us because of all the terrible things that are going on. Even though we feel the need for change we are sometimes simultaneously afraid of this change, what it may mean for us and how it may affect our lives. As someone with anxiety, I could really relate to this poem. It’s difficult to leave our little box and leave our comfort zone. However, exploring also has its perks. We must never let that fear win and stop us from living our lives. I hope you enjoy this poem. And feel free to view more poems using the link below.
