Okay To Be Afraid

by Princess Rizu



An original song inspired by Rebecca Sugar's Steven Universe.


Weak and small
Hide it all
And step back from the light
Towering tall
What to call
This paralyzing fright

But you say
It's okay

Slow and steady
Cold air
I'm scared
But your hand settles me
My fight
What's right
My mind's in a fray
But I'll do it anyway

No, don't mistake me for naive
Won't wear my heart upon my sleeve
Can't ever make this go away
See my reflection as I pass
And as I gaze into the glass
Say "it's okay to be afraid"

Look inside
I'm alive
But barely breathing in
Do what's right
I will fight
For the life I've been given

And I'll say
It's okay

New life
Full, rife
With possibilities
Born inside of me
I've grown
I know
No more running away
I will stand here and I'll say

Though I was broken in the past
Picked up the pieces, swept the glass
Now it's okay to be afraid
See my reflection as I pass
And as I gaze into the glass...
