Too Afraid

Photo By: robert mobley
Some of us say we want better but we’re too afraid to move
Too afraid of our choices too afraid we might lose
When we stay put we have ourselves to blame
Because we’re afraid to go where others don’t know our name
So we stand still in a place where we say we don’t like
A place where we continually struggle and have to fight
Fighting for a place where we should not ultimately be
Too afraid to get up too afraid too leave
Too afraid we might miss something that we shouldn’t even see
Too afraid of a better place where our blessings might be
Too afraid of something that we haven’t physically seen
Too afraid of ourselves so we don’t come clean
Too afraid that a better life is not what we deserve
So we stay put thinking that our lives we’ll preserve
Too afraid to leave family because that’s all we know
So we stay put until our regrets begin to show
Blaming others for the reasons that we cannot leave
Knowing on the inside that’s not what we believe
Too afraid that we might jump out of the pan into the fire
So we settle for where we are until the day that we retire
Too afraid of a challenge too afraid of taking risks
Too afraid of possibilities so we stay in the abyss
When we act as if we’re afraid to live our best life
We are saying to God that his plan wasn’t right
Fantasizing about what could’ve been doesn’t earn you any points
You should get up and go so your life God can annoint
