Sometimes I look in a mirror and ask myself:
Am I really scared of passing away?

Meaning

Recalls Tupac’s sentiment from “Changes” Kendrick is just in deep thought about death because he’s sees it around him daily.

“A coward dies a thousand deaths; a soldier dies but once."

“Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once”
