Fear of Losing (Poem)

There’s a fear of losing you,

There’s a fear of losing myself,

Don’t make me choose between myself and you,

Let me be myself,

Losing myself would result in unhappiness with you.

 

Never tell me not to speak,

Don’t silence me because it would make me feel unloved,

For so long I was told not to speak,

Allow me to say what I want and don’t make me feel unloved,

I’ll become insecure if you don’t allow me to speak.

 

Let me be in control of myself,

Don’t ever become like everyone else who tried to control me,

I’ll slowly become like a wild animal if I don’t have control of myself,

I’ll begin to push you away if you try to control me,

I’ll eventually stop being the caged bird and I’ll fly away if you don’t let me be in control of myself.

 

Truth is, I’m more afraid of losing me,

Thus, I’ll eventually walk away from you even if I’m afraid of losing you,

Yes, I love me,

Yes, I love you,

Yet I rather not lose myself because I rather choose a happy me instead of an unhappy me.
