My heart is pounding.

I start to sweat.

I know nothing out there can hurt me;

But in my head it already has.


How can I face all these people?

Am I being too needy?

Maybe I should say hi.

Maybe I should stay home.


How do I live in peace,

When the only world I can enter,

Is the one in my head?


One day things will be okay.

Thats what I like to tell myself.

Take a new step everyday,

Until you've walked so far you forget your fear.
