'Before you insult someone, walk a mile in their shoes. that way, when you insult them, you'll be a mile away from them and you'll have their shoes.'


I woke at night to find a fear
That leaves me shaking, trembling, scared;
A fear no one must ever hear.

Sometimes I feel a presence near:
The ghost of someone who once cared.
I woke at night to find a fear.

The truth of it is unclear.
But it never ceases to be shared.
A fear no one must ever hear.

Visualized only in the depths of the mirror
Exuding pure evil, many layered.
I woke at night to find a fear

The release only found in my torrent of tears
Hidden alone, for no one dared.
A fear no one must ever hear.

A dark man with a leer
Who cast the terror as he stared.
I woke at night to find a fear.
A fear no one must ever hear.
