It Is Fear

by Noise Pollution

I am afraid of my life

the more time passes
the smaller it all becomes
until everything important
is just
a thin, thin line
and it all points to

but right now
is kind of like that
it’s kind of nothingness

I am afraid of my life

every day that I spend
enjoying myself
is another day that I’m
not what I want to be
or where
it used to be a matter of when

but right now
it feels like a matter of fact
that I’m trapped in some other place

I am afraid of my life
because it could be better.
