My Fear

Big dogs, scary pointed teeth
Silver blades and barbed wire
That time you can’t breathe
The heat of a house on fire

Men who hit, women who defend
Kids who steal, friends who lie
Watch the world come to an end
Having to watch a best friend die

Your little brother in the worst pain
All those words, never said
Finding clothes full of stains
Beading blood, dark and red

Having to live out on the streets
Cold stabbing at your soft skin
The constant lack of something to eat
No one asking where you’ve been

Disappearing into the foreign crowd
Something deadly falling from above
Quiet so loud you can’t hear a sound
Wandering away from that which you love

I write about emotion a lot. This is a piece on fear that I often find myself feeling. I hope you can relate.
