Afraid

Sometimes it seems so hard just to step outside Great big world and not a single place to hide And when life's storms come crashing down There's nowhere to go, no hope to be found While it seems like all my friends have it made I'm always behind, always a little afraid Sometimes it seems so hard just trying to stay afloat Set adrift in this great big world without a buoy or boat And when I think I'm finally nearing shore I'm swept away again and out the open door While it seems like all my friends have it made I'm always behind, always a little afraid Sometimes it seems so hard just trying to find my way In this maze of a world, it's so easy to go astray And when a new day dawns or comes to end I just brace myself and face the world again Though it seems like all my friends have it made They're all just like me, always a little afraid.

This is so real and raw, and captures a lot of our core emotions in a very relatable way. Wonderful expression, Ina.
