The Fear of the Future


Everything I do today sets me up for later on,
But that's what makes me torn!
What do I want to do?
I'm worried about that, too.
It's hard to imagine the future from where I'm standing now.
I just want to know how.
How do I make sure that I'm on the right path?
I feel like I'm in the wrath
Of being strangled by my fears
And drowning in my tears.
I want to make sure that I'm right
And that I'm not just wasting my fight.
Is this worth all of the pain?
Really, what do I gain?
I worry that I won't make my dreams come true;
I know that it worries others, too.
I doubt myself every day-
But in reality, I just want this fear to go away!
