I’ve been threatened by gangs

Had bricks thrown at my head

Knives held to my throat

I’ve overdosed

I’ve nearly drowned so many times

Come close to ending it all

I’ve been to the end of the line


I’ve been scared

So fucking scared

Unable to turn and run

But unable to fight

I’ve been consumed by fear

Felt its crushing weight upon me

Unable to move


Fear has blinded me

Deafened me

Silenced me

Crippled me

Paralysed me

And damn near killed me


But never have I been so scared

So full of fear as I am now

Not of death or darkness

But of a thought

That maybe I’m not good enough

For you

For your heart

For your mind

For your love
