Have you ever been afraid of yourself?
It's the worst feeling there is
because no matter what you do,
no matter what you try,
you can never escape it
because you're trapped inside yourself,
terrified of what could happen next,
afraid of who you could hurt,
afraid of what you might do.
In dreams, thoughts are only amplified.
In wakefulness, horrors become real.
You tell yourself it cant be real,
tell yourself its not who you truly are.
But it is.
And nothing can change it.
Afraid.

This is fantastic. Exactly how I feel now.... I love how poetry can capture precisely how I feel sometimes.

"afraid of who you could hurt,
afraid of what you might do."
At this point you should have realized that it's not your duty to make sure people aren't offended by what you do/are.

"tell yourself its not who you truly are.
But it is.
And nothing can change it."
Well that's pessimistic and false. Last time I asked a normal person he said I'd just have to change myself.
Ask normal people- they know and care! #420yoloswagbitches&whores4lyfe
In all seriousness, this is entire verse could've been reduced to just these three lines.
