Im scared Not because im sick but because im changing Thing around me are staying still And im moving way too fast What is that i will die for? Myself? These thoughts make me sick Im scared that i will die a coward In a pose of fear on my deathbed Its easy to forget a face like that Im scared that i will be forgotten Nobody will remember me The monster who only lives for himself The monster that only dies for himself I need a new change One that can liberate me forever To make sure the selfish monster will never leave his cage And will never relinquish its rage Im not scared of dying Just scared of living

Expressed very well - life can be very scary - especially if you are a thinker. Well done! Liz
