A poem of one's personal struggle


Fear



There a mad man in my room;


I can’t sleep at night;


I’m so afraid of the dark;


I can’t bear to turn off the lights;


I pray to the Lord;


Please hear my prayers;


Make this man go away quick;


Make this fool disappear;


I hear the whisper of his voice;


Deep dark tone;


A coward in the night;


Lying here all alone;


No shelter, No mom;


To keep safe from harm;


He moving close to me;


And I feel all alarm;


He’s breathing down my neck;


My sweat becomes my tears;


Devouring my past as my conscience becomes my fear;


Don’t know about tomorrow;


Lord please let me see;


That the angry person in the room; is no other, but me!
