I Am Afraid

I am afraid of the unknown.

What will me life be like once I graduate?

I am afraid that I'll be all alone.

They say take a simple route, to just go straight.

Why go straight, when a crazier road is much more fun?

I am afraid that they'll say,

"That's not normal. Not like you at all.

You won't go anywhere acting that way."

I am afraid that they're right; I might fall.

But I am a dreamer; and dreams can go far. 

They won't know what hit them

When I become a great star

With my great little gem.

Even then, I am still afraid.
