Venting 101

by Tyler Towns
I’m afraid of the future
I’m afraid that I’ll never leave here
I’m afraid I won’t reach my full potential
I’m afraid to be another statistic
I’m afraid my future family will struggle like I am
I’m afraid my son will take on my burdens
I’m afraid I’ll get a girl pregnant when were not ready
I’m afraid of feeling alone
I’m afraid I’ll never be able to show what I can do
I’m afraid of leaving my mom
I’m afraid people won’t understand the real me
I’m afraid I won’t understand the real me
I’m afraid I’ll die at the wrong time
I’m afraid that my hard work and faith will go in vain
I’m afraid I’ll get back into the slump I was in my junior year
I’m afraid I won’t make it once I leave here
Im afraid to be who I really am to my family
I’m afraid they won’t accept me
I’m afraid I’ll always be blind to my potential
I hate caring what people think
