I climb a tree, but fear not the height But dread the fall. I fear not death, But what life offers. I fear not you But myself. I fear not the future of all, But the future within me. I do not fear the end, But the beginning. I am not afraid to try something new, I fear that I will fail. I fear that I will disappoint you. I fear shame, I fear losing my honor. I fear growing up. I fear love, So I am on my own, Because I fear the world.

The last line "brings it all home" - and is true I imagine. Nice.
