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
