I am afraid.
Winning my trust is not a cake walk.
There are many insecurities laid
inside my heart, secured with an unbreakable lock.


I am afraid of the shade
which gets the uncertainty to trigger.
What makes people break my faith
I am yet unable to figure?

Sometimes, I am afraid
without a conscious reason.
I think I am skeptical and unprepared
for life’s another treason.

I am afraid to love
which I carry in me in abundance.
I think that above
all, I am afraid of my mistakes’ redundance.

I am yet trying to break
this fear which behaves as a shackle
on my true self. I’m striving to make
it, I am still trying to tackle.
