Never Have I Ever

Never have I ever been

So afraid to be myself

Or eat around people

And worry if people will be unkind

 

Never have I ever been

So afraid to have an opinion

Or be an individual

And be in fear of rejection

 

Never have I ever been

So afraid to speak to people

Or converse with my peers

And ask questions regarding my future

 

Never have I ever been

So afraid to take an audition

Or even a technique class

And fear another sprained ankle

 

Never have I ever been

So afraid that I didn't want to dance

Or even get out of bed that day

And be so unsure of myself

 

Never have I ever cried so hard

That I fell asleep with tears

Still streaming from my eyes

Fearing that everything I do

Will always go terribly wrong

 

Never have I ever been

So afraid in my life
