ADVERTISING MY FEARS

Location

AFRAID OF WHO I AM AND WHAT PEOPLE MAY SAY

AFRAID OF THE THOUGHTS I HAVE AND CASUALLY EXISTING DAY TO DAY

AFRAID OF THE POTENTIAL THAT FESTERS INSIDE OF ME

AFRAID OF HOW SOCIETY WILL DICTATE WHO I AM SUPPOSED TO BE

AFRAID THAT I WILL NEVER FULLY BECOME A MAN

AFRAID THAT EVEN STILL READING THIS NOW, YOU STILL FAIL TO UNDERSTAND

AFRAID TO BE STRONG

AFRAID TO HAVE A VOICE IN A WORLD OF SO MUCH WRONG 

AFRAID OF THE STIGMAS I FACE

AFRAID OF THE STRUGGLE I ENDURE TO FIND MY NICHE OR PLACE

AFRAID THAT I WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE FREE

AFRAID THAT I HAVE TO EMBRACE BEING AN INVISIBLE MAN AND NOT HAVING AN IDENTITY

BUT SOMEHOW .... SOMEWHERE

I FEEL THERE'S SOMEONE WHO MIGHT CARE

I BELIEVE THERE'S HOPE IN DESPAIR

IF I CAN COMMUNICATE MY STORY THROUGH ONLINE ADS OR TV COMMERCIALS

PEOPLE MIGHT BE SEE THAT LIFE ISN'T A PLAY AND WE AREN'T PRACTICING FOR REHEARSALS
