It feels like my future is rushing toward me
and I am so afraid
I am afraid of being hurt by people
I am afraid I won’t be able to trust
I am afraid of being on my own
I am afraid to be responsible
I am afraid of the things I cannot control
I am afraid to get old
and watch the people I love around me age too
But I know that the future will be full of wonderful things and people.
But right now,
I am still afraid.
