I’m Scared

Filed under: life,music — nickisym @ 1:30 am

I’ve never been afraid to admit that I am a scary person. I’ve been so since I was a child but as I’ve grown, the things I am scared of have become a little less based on fiction and little more based on the strange reality around me. My reality played loudly in my ears the other day when I discovered R&B artist’s Jazmine Sullivan’s song, “Fear” off of her debut album “Fearless.” If you’ve spent anytime reading this blog over the years, you’ll not be surprised to find that I found some amazing connecting points between me and this song. And since I’m not scared to be transparent, I wanted to share the lyrics of the song–with the bolded parts being my fears. 

Fear: Jazmine Sullivan

I’m Scared to try cuz I’m scared to fail
I’m scared to die cuz I’m scared of hell
I’m scared to kiss scared to hug
I’m scared of sex cuz I’m scared to touch

I’m scared to look cuz I’m scared to see
I’m scared of you cuz I’m scared of me
I’m scared to fly cuz I’m scared to crash
I’m scared to move on so I live in the past

I’m scared to fight cuz I’m scared to bleed
I’m scared of love cuz I’m scared he’ll leave
I’m scared of drugs I’m scared to drink
I’m scared to swim cuz I’m scared to sink

I’m scared to learn cuz I’m scared of truth
Don’t wanna gain weight cuz I’m scared of food
I’m scared to think that the label dropped me
I’m scared to think of my album floppin…

This may sound silly but its true
So don’t pretend it ain’t you too
We all afraid of something here
Cuz you aint human with out fear

I’m scared to start cuz I’m scared I’ll quit
I’m scared that people won’t like my sh*t

I’m scared of fame and paparatzi
rumors starting the people watching

Scared to grow up cuz I’m scared to get old
Scared of the dark and being alone
Scared of war and I’m scared of jail
Scared to share a secret cuz I’m scared you’ll tell

This may sound silly but its true
So dont pretend it ain’t you too
We all afraid of something here
Cuz you ain’t human with out fear



  1. god does not give us the spirit of fear. Fight Satan and his tricks by pleading the blood of jesus over you and your family, and situations.
