Afraid or Selfish

I’m not sure I like how I wrote this.

Which is worse
Being afraid
Or being selfish?
Why is either one bad?
They are natural feelings
And natural reactions.
What is worse
Is not realizing that you
can decide
to not be so afraid
and to not be so selfish.
What is the worst?
Not acknowledging your feelings.

Draft two:
Afraid to speak up
Too selfish to act.
Not sure which is
Sometimes a little fear
Is a good thing.
Sometimes thinking about yourself
Is long overdue
Worse would be
Not realizing you have a choice
About fear and self.
Worse than that
Is not acknowledging the feelings.

Still not sure that’s what I want to say. But they’re both close.
