to: child me
Where did you go? Why did you leave me so quickly? I miss you. I miss your fearlessness. You aren’t afraid of anything but me, sometimes, I feel like I am afraid of everything. You walking in to a class where everyone spoke a language you didn’t really know, but nonetheless, you just started playing with everyone. How did you do that? I wish I could do the things you did, trying everything at least once without fear. Now I can barely try something new because I am so afraid. Afraid of what? I am not sure. Sometimes, afraid of failure, afraid of making a fool out of myself or maybe, I am really just afraid of being me. How did you do it? Just be you. You never really cared what others thought, did you? Oh, how I miss you. I don’t want to be afraid anymore. Come back, and save me from me.
Miss you lots,
