What is it that I fear?

Is it the monster in the dark?

Is it the blood, or the shark?

Is it shadows, ghouls or ghosts?

Is it snakes, spiders, demonic hosts?


What am I afraid of?

Haunted houses, mice?

Bears, lions, lice?

Guts and gore?

Is there more?


None of these hold my fears

None of these hold my tears


I fear the unborn ones

Never to use their lungs


I fear men with knives

Taking away many lives


I fear disease, held by others

Taking sisters, uncles, mothers


I fear choices made with no thought

Consequences faced not


I fear fathers who beat and bang

Living off of other's pain


I fear mothers with addiction

Neglectful and without conviction


What I fear I shall impart

I truly fear the human heart
