The Fear

Maybe I was just scared.
I'm no coward,
But we all
Have something
Or someone
To fear.

They keep us
Awake at night,
Or haunt our dreams.
They're the
Monsters under our bed.
They're what go
BUMP! in the night.
Theirs are the shadows
That follow you everywhere.

Nowhere to run.
Nowhere to hide.

The Fear will catch you.
The Fear will find you.
And you will die before you
Escape its almighty grip.
