"A good friend will bail you out of jail. But a best friend will be sitting right there with you saying 'Dang, we really screwed up this time.'"

They all tell me
To go outside and explore.
Open the door to possibilities
and experience something more.
But should I go?
It echoes in my mind.
Behind the wall of familiarity,
I’m safe here inside.
My brother has gone,
and he’s just fine.
So why am I afraid to look around,
Why does every new idea send a shiver
down my spine?
Because I am not ready
to be pulled by that tide.
In the arms of security,
I’m safe here inside.
