It’s okay to be afraid.

It’s hard to be brave when you’re pressed to the wall

When you’re teetering and just about to fall.

It’s hard to be brave when you’re shaken by the storm,

And thrown aside by the social norm.

It’s hard to be brave when your friends don’t understand,

When they laugh and shout and reprimand.

It’s hard to be brave when standing in the lion’s pit,

When you’re stuck and down to your final wit.

It’s hard to be brave when there’s an echo in your ear

that whispers in fear after fear after fear.

It’s hard to be brave, but put on your armor and call your brigade,

Because even when you’re brave, you’re afraid of being afraid.
