Afraid

You stand afraid.

 

Afraid to lose

But even more

Afraid to win

 

Afraid to fall

And afraid to stand

 

Afraid of preparation

And afraid of not having anything planned

 

You are afraid to trip

And so, afraid to climb

Stumbling through life

Afraid all the time

 

You can’t have clarity

With vision clouded by fear

Pray that much harder for faith

And grace

To grant you courage

To fight against your fear.
