Scared to Move

I ‘m not sure where I am and I don’t know where to go
In the face life’s decisions I try to run but I’m too slow.
Like a dream where I am stuck in the center of my fears
I’m frozen, mind and body, until my future clears.

My problem here is talking, I cannot say a word.
In my dreams I try to scream but I am never heard.
I don’t want to be alone but fear of people wracks my brain
The lack of conversation is driving me insane.

This world’s way too fast; it’s so easy to make mistakes.
Plain and simple: I’m just scared, that’s why my stomach aches.
With the fear of messing up, with fear of missing out
I’ll crawl through life with dread if I’m crippled with self doubt.

So for now I let it rest. For now my mind’s at ease.
Now is all that counts for it’s today I wish to seize.
In such an unforgiving world, today’s my only friend.
But I’m gonna miss him soon because tonight today will end.
