Contradictions

Contradictions

I’m afraid of being right

I’m afraid of being wrong

I’m afraid of being quiet

I’m afraid of being loud

I’m afraid of blending in

I’m afraid of sticking out

I’m afraid of speaking my mind

I’m afraid of never being heard

I’m afraid of taking risks

I’m afraid of having regrets

I’m afraid of following my heart

I’m afraid of losing its beat

I’m afraid of finding love

I’m afraid of losing it

I’m afraid of my dreams

I’m afraid of never achieving them

I’m afraid of not being me

I’m afraid I’m a contradiction

Time

Time

Years
Of your life can go by
As you wait for that
One special moment

Months
Can be wasted
With procrastination
And worry

Weeks
Are lost
When you sit
And ponder the ifs and buts

Days
Gone by
When you blink
And so much is missed

Hours
Given up
To tasks that
Aren’t worth your time

Minutes
Fly by
As you stare at the clock
And hope that your adventure will start

Seconds
That can be washed away
In the sands of time
Or they can change your life
