I am scared.

By Medihah Merchant

I am scared.
There…I said it.

Not to the earth or to the space or even the stars,
But to myself.
To the one who felt it the most.

What about, I asked?

I am scared I won’t make it to where I want to be,
To whom I want to be,
Or to what I dream to be.

So, I asked myself,
Is that all necessary?

And I answered,
Yes.
Otherwise for what else would I be.

So, what now?

Now,
I become!
