Always something sneaking up behind me.
Always someone installing doubt within me.
Never answers speaking gently to me.
Always questions yelling loudly at me.

We can't commit to changing all the time.
And if this is it let's admit that it's our time.
I don't known what all these noises are telling me.
But it might be bad.

So how are we supposed to make the right decisions when we're constantly shook by these frights and shivers?

This shit is so stupid.
How long should we be scared of dark hallways?
Someone please take a step.

And it might be bad.

    "Always something sneaking up behind me.

    That is so perfect. Whenever you feel like you're finally on your feet, something or someone (or yourself) has to knock you down again. Especially when you're young and you want softly spoken advice, not people screaming at you.

    "So how are we supposed to make the right decisions when we're constantly shook by these frights and shivers?"

    I don't know how old the writer is or if this has anything to do with it, but this line sounds like growing up. Like how do we know we're heading in the right direction and making the right choices? If we're not constantly doubting ourselves, then our family is, or our friends are.

    "This shit is so stupid.
    How long should we be scared of dark hallways?
    Someone please take a step.

    And it might be bad."

    I love that because that's what we all need to do. Stop worrying and over-analyzing what might happen. Just do it, whatever it is, and move on...for a while I've been debating between dropping out of high school or not. It's been a long month of going back and forth, getting interventions from my family (half of which says I might as well quit, the other says I should go back). But I've finally decided to keep going. I don't care anymore about tomorrow or the next year. So what if I graduate at 20? I'm fucking doing it.
