My Favorite Fears

to the tune of "My Favorite Things" in The Sound of Music:

death to those close to me
natural disasters
fires at midnight and
burglas who prowl
people in cars who drive by with black guns
these are a few of my favorite fears

diving boards, drowning
skiing and biking
sitting alone and
waiting for others
ordering at resturaunts while they stare and smirk
these are a few of my favorite fears

shedding my mask, show
what i really feel
giving my heart out
and choosing to trust
hoping those close to me won't run away
these are a few of my favorite fears

when the dog bites
when the bee stings
these also make me scream
to counter these fears i hold
tight to my Father and then I don't feel
so scared

katie, maybe you have it all wrong. maybe although you feel like we would run away if someone unmasked themselves, we would actually run to you with arms open wide. you need to trust us to love you unconditionally.
