My inner fear is going to school without any pants on
My inner fear telling a joke but no one is laughing along
My inner fear is getting rejected by my secret crush
My inner fear is the cafeteria and the mystery meat mush
My inner fear going to a school dance without a date
My inner fear is being in shark infested waters, where I’m the bait
My inner fear is getting stung by bees and puffing up like a balloon
My inner fear is trying out for show choir and forgetting the tune
My inner fear was the monster in the closet when I laid in bed at night
My inner fear was mom telling me don’t let the bed bugs bite
My inner fear now is growing up and decisions that lye ahead
My inner fear is now being on my own and paying for myself instead
My inner fears are holding me back and getting over them will not be fun
But now I see my inner fears need to be conquered one fear by one
